Catheters, Small Intestine

Definition : Catheters designed to be introduced through the rectum that are long enough to be advanced until the distal tip is located in the small intestine (typically in the ileum or jejunum and less frequently in the duodenum). These catheters typically consist of single or multilumen tubes made of silicone rubber or plastic (e.g., Teflon). Small intestine catheters are used for irrigation (i.e., clearing out), enemas, to inject contrast media, or for manometric measurements in the small intestine. Dedicated small intestine (typically indwelling) catheters intended to keep the intestine in a controlled, stable position during therapeutic procedures are also available.
