Catheterization Kits, Spinal, Intervertebral Disc
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices and supplies needed to deliver fluids to the spinal intervertebral disc (i.e., intradiscal) space. These kits typically consist of a flexible microcatheter that may include a balloon at its distal tip to deliver the fluid; dedicated guide wires and introducer needles; syringes, stopcocks, and connectors; and solutions appropriate for the intended procedure. Intradiscal catheterization kits are intended mainly for delivery of contrast media, anesthetics, and saline to the intradiscal space in procedures such as functional anesthetic discography for radiographic evaluation of disc damage and to characterize the pain response provoked by disc injection.
