Racz® Catheters

Catheter-TipsAll of Epimed’s spring-reinforced epidural catheters are constructed of surgical-grade stainless steel spring. The uncoated tips are flexible, smooth, and rounded. Distal coils are slightly spread for maximum flexibility and lateral distribution of injectate. Our catheters have enhanced tensile strength and resist longitudinal breakage. Inherent memory in the spring coils reduces kinking and collapsing. In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks.

Brevi-XL™

tun_l_xl_24

The Brevi-XL™ is similar to the Brevi-Kath® with the added versatility of selective distal end stiffness by adjusting the stylet.  The catheter maintains a round atraumatic tip. The stylet runs the entire length of the Brevi-XL™ catheter.  The Brevi-XL™ is designed to provide greater durability, ease in placement, and precise directional control (1:1 torque).  In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks. The Brevi-XL™ is introduced using RX™ or RX-2® 15g or 16g Epidural Needles.

Brevi-XL™/2

tun_l_xl_24

The Brevi-XL™/2 is similar to the Brevi-XL™ with the added versatility of selective distal end stiffness (i.e. firm or soft) by adjusting the stylet.  The catheter maintains a round atraumatic tip.  This catheter comes with two XL stylettes which run the entire length of the Brevi-XL™/2 catheter.  The catheter is designed to provide greater durability, ease in placement, and precise directional control (1:1 torque).  In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks. The Brevi-XL™/2 is introduced using RX™ or RX-2® 15g or 16g Epidural Needles.

Note: Brevi-XL™/2 version includes an extra stylet.

The Brevi-STF™ is a modified version of the Brevi-XL™.  The Brevi-STF™ maintains the advantageous features of the Brevi-XL™ but alternately possesses the largest available stylet.  Even with the added stiffness, this catheter maintains a round atraumatic tip.  The stylet runs the entire length of the Brevi-STF™ catheter.  The Brevi-STF™ is designed to provide greater durability, ease in placement, and precise directional control (1:1 torque).  In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks. The Brevi-STF™ is introduced using RX™ or RX-2® 15g or 16g Epidural Needles.

Tun-L-XL­™  

tun_l_xl_24

The Tun-L-XL­™ catheter features a stylet that runs the entire length of the device. This spring-reinforced catheter is designed to provide maximum distal tip stability and control. The stylet is manufactured to extend to the tip of the catheter, which provides for precise directablity and placement. This stylet can be retracted to provide similar flexibility to the Tun-L-Kath® or can be fully inserted to provide maximum stiffness and precise directional control (1:1 torque). In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks. The Tun-L-XL­™ is introduced using RX™ or RX-2® 15g or 16g Epidural Needles.

Tun-L-XL™/24

tun_l_xl_24

The Tun-L-XL™/24 catheter is similar to the Tun-L-XL™ with the added versatility of selective distal end stiffness (i.e. firm or soft) by adjusting the stylet.  The catheter maintains a round atraumatic tip.  This catheter comes with two XL stylettes which run the entire length of the Tun-L-XL™/24 catheter.  The catheter is designed to provide greater durability, ease in placement, and precise directional control (1:1 torque).  In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks to better highlight key navigational reference marks.  The Tun-L-XL­™/24 is introduced using RX™ or RX-2® 15g or 16g Epidural Needles.

Note: The Tun-L-XL™/24 is packaged with a second stylet
