Procedure Kit/Trays, Catheterization, Spinal, Intervertebral Disc
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices and supplies used for insertion of a catheter intended to deliver fluids to the spinal intervertebral disc (i.e., intradiscal) space. Items in these kits usually include a flexible microcatheter that may have a balloon attached at its distal tip to deliver the fluid, dedicated guide wires and introducer needles; syringes, stopcocks, connectors, and solutions appropriate for the intended procedure. The 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. 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.
