Supporting device for the guidance of catheters insertion

Developed by: Fundación Instituto de Investigación Marqués de Valdecilla


Here we present a supporting device for the guidance of catheters insertion that allows catheters and reservoirs be placed in the ideal location of the patient’s vein without possibility of future migration.

A prototype has been developed. Currently, it is being used in the Interventional Radiology Service at Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla.


Catheters and reservoirs.
