Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE:TFX) announced today the Arrow FlexTip Plus
Closed Tip, Multi-Port epidural catheter has received 510(k) clearance
from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Arrow FlexTip Plus, the market-leading1 Open Tip,
Single-Port epidural catheter, has been proven to significantly reduce
complications commonly associated with epidural catheters, such as vein
cannulations and paresthesia2-3. The Arrow FlexTip Plus
Closed Tip, Multi-Port epidural catheter has been designed using the
same proven technology of the Open Tip, Single-Port catheter, the only
coil-reinforced catheter backed by more than a decade of clinical
evidence. With the addition of the Closed Tip, Multi-Port catheter,
FlexTip Plus now provides the drug dispersion choices clinicians demand.
The coil-reinforced FlexTip Plus catheter material is constructed of
polyurethane, while a majority of spring wound catheters are made of
nylon. This provides a unique balance of softness and strength which
promotes easier insertion, less movement out of the epidural space,
better block quality, and higher satisfaction rates. The Closed Tip,
Multi-Port catheter provides excellent kink resistance and features a
soft, flexible tip with 4 lateral holes.
“Teleflex is adding the FlexTip Plus Closed Tip, Multi-Port to the Arrow
catheter family to continue to support physicians with products that
address the concerns anesthesiologists face on a daily basis,” said Cary
Vance, President, Teleflex Anesthesia and Respiratory. “The FlexTip Plus
Closed Tip, Multi-Port is based on proven technology, helping
anesthesiologists achieve the drug dispersion they prefer with the
quality of care they demand for their patients.”
