Extended catheter patency with SAI Catheter Access Buttons October 29, 2021 15:13

Using Catheter Access Buttons™(CAB) increased full patency of our catheters in this study by 20% at 45 days over our standard fixed catheter exteriorization and Cannulock™ports. At 90 days post-surgery the CAB animals were still 85% fully patent, 5% higher than our standard catheterization at 45 days.
The Cannulock™ports were equal to our standard fixed catheterized animals in this study. At the end of 45 days some of the ligatures holding the ports had become loose and the ports were pulled to the animals side and chewed reducing the use of the port.
For longer term studies we will recommend use of the Catheter Access Button™.
