InfiltraLong Catheter - Effective post-operative wound pain treatment

Wound infiltration is an effective method for post-operative pain treatment. The InfiltraLong catheter has been designed to distribute local anesthetic uniformly over the length of the wound owing to the catheter's precise perforation pattern which occurs 360° about the catheter circumference.

   f e a t u r e s :
• Catheter is clearly marked at the distal and proximal points where the perforation pattern begins and ends for visual confirmation that the perforated segment has been correctly placed within the lesion.

• InfiltraLong's integrated stainless steel helical coil guarantees a uniform, continuous flow of anesthetic, offers protection against creasing or buckling, and further renders the catheter radiopaque and visible under ultrasound.

• InfiltraLong is comprised of transparent polymide, thus enabling visual detection of inflow of blood under condition of misplaced catheter.

• InfiltraLong is available in various perforation lengths to suit a range of wound sites. See order information.

   I n t r o d u c i n g   c a t h e t e r   t o   w o u n d  s i t e :
   InfiltraLong catheter is introduced to wound site alternatively by Slit/Peel cannula or via Tuohy cannula.


Split/Peel Cannula Tuohy Cannula

1. Skin puncture. The split cannula is advanced until the tip is visible in the wound. The lock is loosened, and the metal cannula retracted.
2. Introduction of the catheter. The catheter is introduced through the split cannula in such manner so that the complete perforated segment is situated in the wound, resulting in uniform anesthetic distribution. Care must be taken in catheter placement to avoid blood vessel injury.
3. The Split cannula is now separated and removed.
Not Illustrated: Following removal of split cannula, the filter is connected to the catheter. A first injection of approx. 10ml of local anesthetic is administered before securing the catheter and closing the wound. This serves to ensure that the infusion is proceeding successfully and that post-operative pain treatment can commence. Catheter is ably secured with EpiGuard fixation
