A New Option for Preventing Occlusion and Biofilm Formation in the SUB™ System
This convenient kit contains the items you need to quickly and effectively flush the SUB™ System. Conveniently packaged into one easy-to-use, compact kit, this set saves you precious time and packs the power of T-FloLoc™, the PREMIUM catheter flushing and locking solution offering both patency and infection control.
Current recommendations include flushing the SUB device prior to discharge, at 1-week post-operatively, then at 1-month, and finally every 3 months thereafter. During the flushing procedures, a urine sample is obtained for analysis and culture, followed by infusion of a novel solution called tetrasodium ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, also called tetra-EDTA, or T-FloLoc™. This substance helps prevent occlusion with stone material and treats/prevents biofilm formation. This procedure typically does not require any sedation or anesthesia, is performed using ultrasound guidance with minimal restraint, and can be performed more routinely if necessary in patients at high risk for encrustation or infection. The SUB Flush Kit has been designed to include everything you will need to perform this procedure. The pack is sterile and the contents should be put together using sterile gloves. The patient is positioned in dorsal recumbency in a V-trough to facilitate port access and ultrasonography.
