Amplatz Sheaths Brief Statement

Used during renal dilatation to provide and maintain a nephrostomy tract.

Some percutaneous renal procedures may be contraindicated in the following situations (unless the anticipated benefits outweigh the potential risks):

  • Uncontrolled haemostasis disorders.
  • Untreated urinary tract infection.
  • Malignant kidney or urinary tract tumor.

Do not use when, in the judgment of the physician, such a procedure would be contrary to the best interest of the patient.

Warnings and Precautions

  • The Amplatz sheath is compatible with surgical instruments up to a diameter of 10 mm.
  • It is the typical practice to choose a dilator diameter corresponding to sheath inner diameter.
  • Do not resterilize this product.
  • The risks and benefits of using Amplatz Sheath should be considered in patients.

Adverse Events
As with any dilation or percutaneous access creation, the use of the dilatation balloon and Amplatz sheath may be associated with several risks including, but not limited to:

  • Damage (perforation, tissue trauma) to the urinary tract, kidney, or neighboring organs, particularly if the instructions for use have not been complied with, and especially if the catheter or the sheath has been positioned without fluoroscopic control.
  • Bleeding when withdrawing the sheath.
