  • SCOOP Catheters:
    The SCOOP catheter is a 9 French, single distal port catheter available in 9cm, 11cm, and 13cm lengths. The correct length SCOOP catheter must be used in all newly created tracts while the tract matures, and then continue to be used in mature tracts for flows up to 12liter per minute. Catheter cleaning can often be achieved in place through the use of the cleaning rod and the periodic instillation of saline. Once the tract is mature, cleaning may also be achieved by replacing the indwelling SCOOP catheter with a clean SCOOP catheter. The method and frequency of cleaning is totally dependent on each patients clinical course
