The Percutaneous Nephrostomy (PCN) Catheter with needle is used in the same cases as the PCN Catheter. It can however directly puncture through the skin into the kidney. This avoids having to insert a needle and catheter separately i.e. one after the other.
The MEDpro PCN Catheter is made of polyurethane and is coloured blue.
The needle is made of stainless steel. Both are supplied in a sterile peel-open package and are intended for one-time use only.
