Comparison of the use of conventional, hydrophilic and gel-lubricated catheters with regard to urethral micro trauma, urinary system infection, and patient satisfaction in patients with spinal cord injury: a randomized controlled study. (4/350)

BACKGROUND: Management of the lower urinary tract is crucially important in patients with spinal cord injuries in order to prevent damage to the upper urinary tract and to preserve renal function. AIM: This study was designed to compare the use of standard polyvinyl chloride (PVC), hydrophilic-coated, and gel-lubricated non-hydrophilic catheters with regard to urethral micro trauma, urinary system infection, and patient satisfaction in patients with spinal cord injuries. Study design. Randomized, controlled study. SETTING: University hospital, inpatient clinic. POPULATION: Twenty-five male patients with spinal cord injuries. METHODS: The patients were asked to use 3 different types of catheters. The selection of catheter order was determined randomly, and all 3 catheters were used for 6 weeks consecutively. All patients were assessed at the beginning of treatment and at weeks 6, 12, and 18, in terms of urethral cytology, urinalysis, urine culture, and patient satisfaction (Visual Analog Scale, VAS). RESULTS: Ten patients completed the study. Regarding the urethral trauma evaluation, urethral cell counts were reduced with gel-lubricated non-hydrophilic catheter use (P<0.05), increased with PVC catheter use (P<0.05), and showed no change with hydrophilic-coated catheter use (P>0.05). The number of leucocytes in the urine sediment was significantly reduced after gel-lubricated catheter use (P<0.05). There was significantly less microhematuria with hydrophilic-coated and gel-lubricated non-hydrophilic catheter use compared with PVC catheter use (P<0.05). There were no significant differences among catheters with respect to symptomatic urinary tract infection and microbiological analysis of urine culture (P>0.05). The mean VAS was better with the gel-lubricated non-hydrophilic catheter than with the other two catheter types (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: The hydrophilic-coated catheter and especially the gel-lubricated non-hydrophilic catheter reduce trauma to the urethral surfaces and enable easy and comfortable catheterization. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: The hydrophilic and gel-lubricated catheters represent an attractive alternative to standard PVC catheters for urological rehabilitation in patients with spinal cord injuries.  (+info)

Current and emerging catheter technologies for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty Ponangi Udaya Prashant CARE Hospitals, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, India Abstract: Appropriate guide catheter selection is a paramount requirement for successful angioplasty of complex coronary artery lesions. When choosing an appropriate guide catheter, the diameter and shape of the guide are the most important factors to be considered, and depend on the anatomy of the coronary artery and backup support required to cross the obstructive lesion. In turn, backup support of the guide catheter depends on the size and terminal shape of the guide rather than the route of intervention chosen and can be expressed mathematically. Many radial route-specific guide catheters have been developed by introducing extratertiary curves and angles to previous existing femoral guides. Backup support can be enhanced by various maneuvers and innovations like the “mother-child” technique. Computer-aided aortogram analysis

This is a guide catheter assembly. The guide catheter assembly is used to cooperate with a micro-catheter in accessing a tissue target within the body, typically a target which is accessible through the vascular system. Central to the invention is the use of a braided metallic reinforcing member, situated within the catheter body in such a way to create a catheter section having an exceptionally thin wall, controlled stiffness, and high resistance to kinking. The catheter has a terminal segment which is not supported by a braid and the polymer making up that terminal segment is either the same hardness as is the polymer making up the outer covering of next more adjacent section or, preferably, the polymer is harder than is the polymer making up the segment located just proximally of that terminal segment. The braid may have a single pitch or may vary in pitch along the axis of the catheter or catheter section. The braided reinforcing member typically is embedded in a flexible outer tubing member. An

A system and method for navigating coronary vasculature involves use of a guide catheter system which includes a guide catheter, a navigator catheter longitudinally displaceable within the guide catheter, and a deflection arrangement provided at a distal end of the navigator catheter. The guide catheter is advanced to at least a patients coronary sinus ostium, and the navigator catheter is extended from the guide catheter to a location proximate or within an angled vein distal to the coronary sinus ostium. Using the deflection arrangement, a guide wire passing through the navigation catheter is directed into the angled vein. A lead having an open lumen is advanced over the guide wire to direct the lead to an implant site within the angled vein.
Knotting of the right coronary catheter during left heart catheterisation is a recognised complication and has been reported previously.1-3 Knotting is usually the result of excessive torquing of the right coronary catheter, especially in a tortuous aorta.2 Applying clockwise or anticlockwise rotation or gentle traction can result in reduction of simple knots. However, more complex knots may rotate in the direction of torque adding further problems. Sometimes a guidewire can be advanced to the knot and with gentle traction of the catheter the wire may pass through and open the knot.3 Unfortunately, if a knot is too tight the guidewire will not be able to pass through the knot and this technique will be unsuccessful. There is also a risk of perforating the catheter if excessive force is used. A single case report has suggested that a longer introducer sheath can facilitate manipulation of a kinked catheter.2. Chinician and colleagues4 described a technique that involves the introduction of a ...

A rotating cutting head catheter for passage through chronic total occlusions or other refractory atherosclerotic plaque from diseased arteries is disclosed. The catheters rotating cutting head is designed to reside safely within an outer protective sheath when not in use. The outer protective sheath contains one or more helical grooves or slots, and the cutting head contains protruding blades or projections that fit into these helical grooves or slots. Application of torque to an inner catheter or wire attached to the cutting head applies spin to the cutting head, and the force of the sheaths helical grooves or slots against the cutting heads protruding blades or projections advances the cutting head outward from the protective sheath. Once extended, the cutting head may now rotate freely. The device may use a guidewire to direct the cutting head to the desired position.
A catheter is disclosed which is capable of cutting obstructive tissue from a vessel of a living body while shielding a portion of the wall of the vessel from being exposed to the cutting blade at the catheters distal end. An essentially continuous outer surface at the catheters distal end allows it to be readily advanced through an introducer sheath and through a tight stenosis in an artery. The shield at the catheters distal end could subtend an arc from as little as 45 degrees to as large as 270 degrees depending on the extent of the vessel wall that is to be protected from being cut. A vacuum source at the catheters proximal end can cause a suction to exist at a cutout at the catheters distal end in order to pull obstructive tissue into the cutout as the cutting cylinder is pulled back in a retrograde direction, this suction being capable of enhancing the removal of the obstructive tissue.

Justia columnist and Cardozo law professor Marci Hamilton discusses what the institutions and people who oversee youth and school sports must do in order to avoid child sex abuse, and other types of abuse that can be related to sports, such as verbal abuse. Hamilton begins by noting that we need to clearly define what is abuse, whether sexual, verbal, or otherwise. In addition, she argues that youth athletic organizations need to institute hotlines for reporting abuse, and also to ensure backup support for young athletes if a hotline alone is not enough, as it may not be in some circumstances. In addition, Hamilton discusses the institution of penalties for adults who know of abuse and do nothing, and notes how sports culture can be changed for the better with the help of The Positive Coaching Alliance.

The administrative state is the #1 threat to our freedom, a fact which no one knows better than our friend Howard Root. Howard was the founder and CEO of Vascular Solutions, Inc., a successful medical products company that was set up as a victim by Barack Obamas hyper-politicized Department of Justice. For five years, Obamas DOJ persecuted and harassed Howard and his company with bogus claims. Thankfully, Howard Root had both the financial resources and, more important, the courage-he was facing prison time-to stand up to the DOJs bullies.. Ultimately, a jury acquitted Howard and Vascular Solutions on all charges. One of the jurors wrote Howard to say that what the government tried to do to him was a disgrace. Still, Howard had to leave the medical products industry, as he knew that he could continue to be a target of vengeful prosecutors, to the detriment of the company that he had led since its founding. Last month, he sold Vascular Solutions. Howard has written a book about his ordeal ...

Definition : Vascular catheters designed to facilitate intravascular access through their lumen to specific vessels (e.g., iliac, carotid, and coronary arteries). These catheters (also known as guiding sheaths) usually consist of a single-lumen tube with an appropriate configuration, stiffness, and tip to access a particular section of the vasculature. Guiding vascular catheters are used to insert other catheters, guide wires, balloons, occlusion devices, and stents, while performing intravascular catheterization procedures (e.g., angioplasty, atherectomy). Dedicated vascular guiding catheters are also used in a variety of intravascular (e.g., peripheral, central venous) introducers and catheterization procedure kits and trays..

A tunneled catheter remains the most common access in patients initiating haemodialysis.1 This is most likely because the catheters are ready to use immediately after insertion, with no maturation time needed. As with any other dialysis access, hydraulic performance is critical for tunneled catheters. This depends mainly on the exit site, the shape of the catheter curve, and the tip position. In this report, Mohamed A Sheta and John R Ross discuss one important technical issue: the catheter tip.. In 2006, the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative recommended that at the time of placement, the tip(s) of the catheter should be in the mid-atrium, with the arterial lumen facing the mediastinum.2 In one study, Mandolfo et al reported better blood flow with the catheter tip in the right atrium.3 In another study by McCarthy, the mean survival of catheters in the right atrium was 245 days, but only 116 days for catheters placed at the junction of the superior vena cava and the right atrium.4 ...

The construction of realistic simulators for medical procedures is increasingly important. We describe here a physical model and a numerical algorithm to simulate the insertion and navigation of a catheter into an arterial system. A novel formulation of the elasticity of thin rods was developed for modeling the catheter. The catheter bends and twists within the blood vessels, not simply tracking a central curve.
