The desired vessel or cavity is punctured with a sharp hollow needle, with ultrasound guidance if necessary. A round-tipped guide wire is then advanced through the lumen of the needle, and the needle is withdrawn. A sheath or introducer can now be passed over the guide wire into the cavity or vessel. Alternatively, drainage tubes are passed over the guide wire (as in chest drains or nephrostomies). After passing a sheath or tube, the guide wire is withdrawn.
Percutaneous Catheter for Vessel Access designed with added kink resistance and a hemostasis valve. Each package comes with a sheath consisting of the sheath tube, valve, side tube and three-way stop cock with a dilator and guide wire, all sterilized using ETO.
An introducer sheath can be used to introduce catheters or other devices to perform endoluminal (inside the hollow organ) procedures, such as angioplasty. Fluoroscopy may be used to confirm the position of the catheter and to manoeuvre it to the desired location. Injection of radio contrast may be used to visualize organs. Interventional procedures, such as thermoablation, angioplasty, embolisation or biopsy, may be performed.
Upon completion of the desired procedure, the sheath is withdrawn. In certain settings, a sealing device may be used to close the hole made by the procedure.
