Non-stimulating needle and ultrasound-visible catheter system for continuous nerve block.
Contiplex® FX is a non-stimulating, ultrasound-visible catheter through a non-stimulating tuohy needle and is designed to help reduce procedural steps during catheter placement. The sideport with valve facilitates pre-loading of the catheter while the integrated sideport allows injection and catheter placement without the need to disconnect during the procedure.
