Teleflex launches new polyurethane catheter

This announcement follows the FlexBlock catheter's recent 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to Teleflex, the Arrow FlexBlock continuous peripheral nerve block catheter is intended for clinicians who use ultrasound-guidance when placing catheters. The echogenic, coil-reinforced catheter body is constructed of polyurethane, and the catheter design is said to offer a combination of ultrasound visibility, flexibility, and good kink resistance. The catheter's tip design is intended to provide clinicians with a predictable spread of anesthetic.
