Procedure Kit/Trays, Irrigation/Lavage, Upper Urinary Tract

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) designed for the liquid cleansing of the upper urinary tract, in particular the ureters. Items in these kits usually include a needleless bulb or plunger syringe, a container, a dedicated ureteral catheter, a waterproof drape, and an alcohol prep pad. The syringe used for irrigation in the kit may be also used for aspiration (i.e., removal) of the irrigating fluid and/or debris. These kits may be 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. Upper urinary tract irrigation kits and trays are used for therapeutic treatment of infection and inflammation; they are also used to remove clots (e.g., after surgical procedures), to instill drugs, and/or for treatment of renal stones.
