Cook® Ultraxx™ Nephrostomy Balloon

Product Information

The Ultraxx Nephrostomy Balloon is used to dilate the musculofascial tract and renal capture establishing a nephrostomy tract during a percutaneous procedure. For access the UIltraxx balloon has a short transitional taper from the balloon to the catheter shaft at the tip. This short tip provides close approximation of the dilating tract to the surgical site, enhancing access to difficult stone impacted calyces.

Platinum bands provide maximum radiopacity to endure precise balloon dilation positioning in even the most demanding cases. Balloon has a 20 atmosphere-rated burst pressure.

Set includes balloon catheter, sheath and inflation device.

Used for ureteral dilation prior to ureteral stone manipulation or ureteroscopy, as well as dilation of the intramural ureter. Radiopaque markers are placed at the proximal and distal ends of the balloon. A special pin-vise handle is included to stabilise the wire guide during introduction.

Set includes balloon catheter and wire guide.
