AngioDynamics Releases the Total Abscession Catheter
AngioDynamics has announced the release of the Total Abscession general drainage catheter, a catheter designed to percutaneously drain abscesses and other fluid collections.
The company's catheter features a tamper-resistant locking mechanism known as the Vault. This unique feature eliminates additional procedures to replace drainage catheters when the locking pigtail shape becomes unlocked during routine catheter maintenance. AngioDynamics believes that the Vault reduces physician time and increases patient comfort.
The Total Abscession catheter also permits aspiration while the pigtail is in either the locked or unlocked position, allowing the physician accuracy in placement and greater versatility for draining complex situations. The catheter will be available for limited distribution in the U.S. immediately.
