Teleflex Receives FDA Clearance for Epidural Catheter

Teleflex today announced that its Arrow FlexTip Plus Closed Tip epidural catheter has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The closed tip, multi-port catheter provides kink resistance and features a flexible tip with four lateral holes, according to a company release. The coil-reinforced catheter material is constructed of polyurethane and was designed using the same technology of the Teleflex's open tip, single-port catheter, which has shown to reduce complications such as vein cannulations and paresthesia.

"Teleflex is adding the FlexTip Plus Closed Tip, Multi-Port to the Arrow catheter family to continue to support physicians with products that address the concerns anesthesiologists face on a daily basis," said Cary Vance, President, Teleflex Anesthesia and Respiratory. "The FlexTip Plus Closed Tip, Multi-Port is based on proven technology, helping anesthesiologists achieve the drug dispersion they prefer with the quality of care they demand for their patients."
