Abstract

We describe a new pyeloureteral drainage catheter that can be used for both genitourinary tract stenting and drainage, as well as tamponade of bleeding from the renal parenchyma or subcutaneous tissue. Primary indications for the use of this catheter and recommendations on insertion techniques are presented. With the exception of one case of minor kinking of the catheter, we have had no complications or failures with this catheter. While insertion through an unprotected tissue track is somewhat difficult, we have had good success introducing the catheter through a 24-F or larger Teflon working sheath. The catheter has excellent patient retention properties. It can be converted from external to internal drainage or vice versa simply and quickly on the ward.
