Procedure Kit/Trays, Biopsy, Renal
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for performing a kidney (i.e., renal) biopsy procedure. Items in these kits usually include a spinal needle, a biopsy gun, glass slides, sterile gloves, xylocaine, a surgical blade, and a disposable syringe with needle; they may also include a disposable cup filled with formalin, towels, a plastic container, cotton balls, a cotton applicator, and a suture scissor. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Renal biopsy procedure kits and trays are intended for use during the removal of a small piece of kidney tissue for laboratory (in-vitro) examination to diagnose and/or to determine the severity of a kidney disorder.
