BLOOMINGTON, Ind.

A recent study by Breda et al shows that the Flexor® Parallel Rapid Release Ureteral Access Sheath (UAS) provides physicians an option to use one wire guide for treatment and diagnostic purposes during flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) procedures. The study confirmed that when the Flexor® Parallel is used for fURS procedures, a single wire guide can serve as both the safety and working wire.1

Other authors have reported that ureteral access sheath use in patients amenable to the procedure has been shown to decrease intraluminal pressure during fURS and permit drainage and elimination of dust and stone fragments, which may decrease operative time and costs.2-4

“We are gratified that the results of this study support the potential cost savings of using UAS by eliminating the need for an additional wire guide,” said Jean-Marc Creissel, vice president of Cook Medical’s Urology division. “We are thrilled to provide physicians options to perform fURS by using the traditional Flexor placement or the rapid-release technique.”
