DualPort Contrast


The Dual-Port is an implantable double-chamber port with a port inlay made of titanium and a plastic casing for the simultaneous administration of incompatible medication. This port system also permits the high-pressure application of a contrast medium as part of regular tumour staging.


Benefits

Excellent plastic-titanium combination  The special combination of two materials provide light weight and high safety.

Suitable for high-pressure applications  The pressure resistance of the systems allows the application of certain substances with high pressure.

Ergonomic design  A flat construction form for easy placement and handling.

Easy identification  Palpation of both excellently-palpable port chambers allows for their easy localisation.

Minimal mixing  The graduated openings of the catheter lumen ensure that mixing of applied medication is kept to a minimum.

MRT-conditional  Reduced artefact formation (up to 3.0T)

Connection mechanism  Transparent click-connector for simple and easy connection as well as secure and reliable fixation of catheter and port chamber.

Knowledge

The required flow rate and pressure stability (for the injection of contrast media for CT examinations) can be ensured by using a 19 G (1.1 mm) Huber needle from the Jetcan™ range or with the EZ Huber™ safety infusion cannula (to avoid needlestick injuries). Both product ranges are available from pfm medical.

Test conditions: High-pressure injector with a set maximum pressure of 21 bar/300 psi; flow rate 5 ml/s; connection tube 1.5 m, 60 s; contrast medium Visipaque® 320 at a temperature of 37 to 38°C; with vascular simulation; Jetcan™ (19 G, 25 mm) Huber needle with extension. Instructions for use and port care advice must be strictly adhered to. Data from in-vitro test series are available on request.
