Figure 2 – Swan Neck Missouri Catheters
Swan neck Missouri catheters for left and right side have perrmanent bends between cuffs. A permanent bend between the cuffs eliminates the silicone rubber resilience force or “shape memory”, which tends to extrude the external cuff. The downward peritoneal entrance tends to keep the tip in the true pelvis, reducing its migration. Stencils for skin markings help proper localization in the abdomen.
