- Patented multilayer technology produces a balloon with Rated Burst Pressure of 30 ATM.
- Non-compliant balloon maintains its diameter and shape even under high pressure
- Coaxial shaft design produces greater column strength than traditional dual-lumen design, minimizing kinking and bending during insertion.
- Lowest available pre-inflation balloon profile eases insertion and minimizes risk of trauma.
- Short tapered tip and balloon “shoulders” allow placement close to calculi
- Straight, symmetrical balloon eases insertion of sheath.

Indications for Use - The X-FORCE® N30 nephrostomy balloon dilation catheter is recommended for the use in the dilation of the nephrostomy tract and for the placement of the working sheath.
- Do not use the X-FORCE® N30 Nephrostomy Balloon Dilation Catheter in the presence of conditions which create unacceptable risk during the dilation of the nephrostomy tract
- Do not advance or with draw the catheter or guidewire against any significant resistance. The cause of the resistance must be determined fluoroscopically and remedial actions taken.
- Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
- If resistance is felt, when removing either the catheter or guidewire from the working sheath, stop and consider removing them as a single unit to prevent damage to the product. Applying successive force to the catheter can result in tip breakage or balloon separation.
- Do not use air or gaseous substances as balloon inflation media, always use sterile liquid media.
- Only a physician who has an understanding of the clinical applications, technical principles and associated risks associated with balloon dilation of the nephrostomy tract should use the device.
- After use, the product may be a potential biohazard. Handle and dispose of in accordance with acceptable medical practices and with applicable laws and regulations.
- The complications that may arise from a dilation procedure include tissue trauma and perforation.
