Non-stimulating catheter system for continuous nerve block.
Contiplex® Tuohy is a non-stimulating catheter through a stimulating tuohy needle and is designed to help reduce procedural steps during catheter placement. The patented 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.
Contiplex Tuohy is the most frequently used CPNB catheter system in the United States.1
