The safe and simple answer for both Sonohysterography and Hysterosalpingography.
Saline-infused sonohysterography dramatically increases diagnostic yield. Studies show that the slow infusion of saline into the uterus during transvaginal ultrasound can greatly enhance the depiction of uterine pathology, this procedure can now be made simple and atraumatic with the H/S Elliptosphere™ Catheter. The H/S Elliptosphere™ Catheter for oil-based or water-based hysterosalpingography is a flexible, small size (5 Fr) catheter featuring a unique design that provides previously unavailable freedom from trauma for the patient. The unique placement sheath enable the balloon-bearing catheter to be quickly positioned into the uterus or into the cervical canal.
- Patented Elliptosphere balloon affords complete clinical control with minimal patient discomfort
- Control of balloon contour and volume permits secure placement in the cervical canal or uterine cavity for optimal visualization
- Catheter can be used with oil- or saline-based medium
- Unique balloon design prevents retrograde leakage of distension media, which facilitates peak uterine distention
- Latex-free construction
- Small catheter size enables placement next to ultrasound probe
The Elliptosphere’s contour and volume control facilitate atraumatic placement in the cervical canal:
Unique, patented polyurethane non-latex balloon is elliptical at low volume for placement in the cervical canal for optimal visualization of the uterine cavity, including the lower uterine segment. At full volume, the balloon becomes round for placement at the internal os for complete uterine visualization.
Saline-infused sonohysterography dramatically increases diagnostic yield:
The slow infusion of saline into the uterus during transvaginal ultrasound can greatly enhance the depiction of uterine pathology. This procedure, known as Hysterosonography or Sonohysterography, is now made simple and atraumatic with the balloon-bearing H/S Elliptosphere Catheter Set, so it's easily performed in an office or hospital. Unlike earlier catheters, the balloon can be distended preferentially to maximize visualization and minimize discomfort for individualized patient care.
For administering contrast media during Hysterosalpingography or Hysterosonography procedures to detect uterine pathology such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions or endometrial thickening, and/or patency of fallopian tubes.
Suspected infection, suspected pregnancy, profuse bleeding or sexually transmitted disease.
