The RAUMEDIC UROBAR catheter is able to simultaneously measure the pressure in the bladder (vesical pressure) and in the urethra. The number and structure of the pressure sensors in the catheter used to measure urodynamic pressure, the diameter of the catheter, and the option for an additional lumen depend on its composition. It is very easy to adapt the UROBAR to commonly used urodynamic measuring stations.
RAUMEDIC offers various accessories for the implantation of all catheters in the NEUROVENT family. In addition to accessories that are used directly for implanting the catheter, RAUMEDIC also offers the cables that are needed to transfer the measured parameters from the catheter to the hospital’s patient monitors.
To implant the catheter, the calvaria is penetrated with a DRILL and corresponding DRILL bit. The DRILL bit size is selected to match the diameter of the BOLT screw. The DRILL bit is disposable and for single use only, since it keeps its sharpness only for a short time due to the abrasive properties of the bone.
If the DRILL bit is dull, it creates high temperatures locally due to friction and thus leads to thermal damage in the bone, which will negatively affect the healing of the bone. The DRILL KIT matches the diameter of the BOLT screw and is offered for parenchyma and ventricular catheters.
Each DRILL KIT comes with an Allen key to adjust the depth of the stopper on the DRILL.
To safely position the measuring catheter, a BOLT is screwed into the drilled hole. By means of a screwing-in tool the BOLT is fixed in the skull and creates a sterile seal for the drilling hole. The catheter is also firmly secured into the BOLT with the help of a flexible sealing cap. This way, the catheter is provided with a certain strain relief to protect it from damage caused by the patient's movements.
The BOLT KIT PTO 2L is a 2 lumen BOLT, which provides secure positioning of the NEUROVENT-PTO 2L and the microdialysis catheter through a single access port.
BOLT KIT PTO 2L guarantees a safe positioning of the measuring catheters in the drilling hole. By means of a screwing-in tool the BOLT is fixed in the skull and creates a sterile seal for the drilling hole. Because of the low height and the flexible lumens above the BOLT screw the BOLT KIT PTO 2L is ideally suited for clinical applications.
