Since the first stone removal procedure, surgeons have faced the challenges posed by navigation through delicate urological anatomy while safely and efficiently resolving a variety of clinical problems. As technology and knowledge have advanced, patients have become more informed about their options-and better tools have enabled safer, less invasive surgical solutions.
BARD's Kidney and Stone Management business focuses on products to aid the urologist in surgically resolving conditions and diseases of the upper urinary tract. These include, but are not limited to, gaining access to the urinary tract; dilating urinary strictures; removing kidney stones; and providing temporary drainage. These products are used in cystoscopic, ureteroscopic, and nephroscopic procedures. Some examples are:
For Urethra and Bladder Management, we offer a full line of products that can be used with or without a cystoscope. These include urethral dilation products, such as filiforms and followers, as well as metal sounds. We also offer Bladder Access products such as Supra-pubic and urological procedural trays.
For Stone Management, we offer a complete line of innovative products that are typically used in conjunction with an ureteroscope. These include:
For Percutaneous Renal Access and Surgery, we offer a variety of drainage products such as nephrostomy catheters, pezzars and malecots.
