ClearPorts - The Rounded Chamber Port
The innovative design of the ClearPort series, in titanium and plastic, offers a major advantage over conventional port technology.
The Rounded Chamber design
– reduces dead spaces
– minimizes corners
– minimizes sludge* formation
– minimizes occlusions and infections
The Unique Catheter outlet placement
– improves flow dynamics
– results in more complete flushing
*sludge – accumulation of blood and drug residuals
ClearPorts are available in 3 sizes in both titanium or plastic (MRI conditional).
The CP 2 models are suitable for sheep, swine and large dogs
The CP 4 models are suitable for smaller swine & dogs as well as larger primates
The CP 6 models are suitable for cats, rabbits and small primates
Ports can be ordered with catheters that are preattached during manufacture or that are attachable/ attached during surgery
Silicone, Polyurethane, Intisil (round tip Silicone) or Hydrocoat (round tip Hydromer coated Polyurethane) catheter in French sizes 2-9.
The rounded port chamber design allows fluid to reach all surfaces in the chamber, helping eliminate dead spaces, resist sludge build-up, and reduce occlusions and infections*.
The unique catheter outlet placement creates a flushing action within the port to hypercleanse the entire chamber leading to decreased sludge build-up and a reduced rate of occlusions*.
