“Unlike standard catheters, it has features that make HSG and SIS procedures easier, thus faster to perform. In addition, the catheter is more comfortable for my patients and that means there’s a better chance of procedure completion.”
—Charles E. Miller, MD

About

Made with advanced features for improved patient comfort and a better chance of procedure completion

  • Soft tip
    The soft tip of the catheter allows for smooth insertion into the cervical canal, minimizing tearing of cervical tissue.
  • Thinner diameter
    Unlike other systems, the thinner diameter of the outer sheath can be placed into the endocervix to the level of the internal os with no additional dilation required, allowing the catheter to pass easily through the cervix and into the uterine cavity.
  • Memory sheath
    The sheath is made of a flexible memory material that allows the catheter to comfortably conform to the shape of the cervix, the cervicouterine junction, and the uterus.

IFU

Miller Advance Catheter™ Intended Use

Indications
For administering contrast media or saline during hysterosalpingography and saline infusion sonohysterogram procedures to detect uterine pathology such as polyps, fibroids, adhesions, or endometrial thickening, and/or to examine the patency of the fallopian tubes.

Contraindications
Suspected infection, suspected pregnancy, profuse bleeding, or sexually transmitted disease.

Precautions
Do not exceed the recommended balloon inflation volume (1.5 cc for the 5 Fr catheter) or the balloon may burst.

The use of OIL-BASED contrast media such as ethyl esters may interact with the balloon of the catheter, causing possible balloon rupture. The use of aqueous contrast media is recommended.

Adverse Events
Some patients may have a hypersensitivity to contrast media.

Instructions for Use

  1. Remove catheter from pouch.
  2. Remove and discard the protective sleeve.
  3. Attach a syringe with either contrast media or saline (not supplied) to the luer connector of the injection line. Inject contrast media or saline through the catheter to remove air. Advance the insertion sheath so that the distal end of the catheter protrudes slightly from the distal end of the sheath.
  4. View the cervix and advance the sheath and catheter together into the cervix. (See Figure 1)
  5. While holding the sheath, advance the catheter through the cervical canal and into the uterus. When the catheter is blocked by the uterus, follow the steps detailed in Figures 2-5.
  6. Open the stopcock and slowly inflate the balloon with either air or saline up to 1.5 cc for the 5 Fr catheter. (See Figure 6)
  7. Close the stopcock, allowing the balloon to remain inflated. Gently withdraw catheter so balloon will rest against the internal os.
  8. Inject contrast media or saline into the uterus and complete the examination.
  9. Open the stopcock to deflate the balloon. Withdraw the catheter.
