Optilume® Urethral Drug Coated Balloon
Optilume® Urethral Drug Coated Balloon for the treatment of Anterior Urethral Stricture
The Optilume® urethral drug-coated balloon was developed in response to severe patient and physician dissatisfaction with current stricture solutions.
The Optilume® technology combines mechanical dilation for immediate symptomatic relief with local drug delivery to maintain urethral patency.
The semi-compliant balloon expands the tissue creating a mechanical balloon dilation effect rupturing the urethral mucosa and allowing direct, circumferential drug delivery to the exposed submucosa through micro-fissures across the length of the stricture.¹
Rapid uptake of the highly lipophilic drug, paclitaxel, limits hyperactive cell proliferation and the fibrotic scar tissue generation that results in stricture recurrence.
PrimeSight™ Flexible Cystoscope, Endosheath® & Accessories
The innovative PrimeSight cystoscopy system revolutionizes the efficiency of quality patient care by combining a high-performance cystoscope with the EndoSheath protective barrier, a sterile, single-use product with an integrated working channel. Using a PrimeSight flexible endoscope with the EndoSheath protective barrier eliminates the need for high-level disinfection between every procedure, ensuring that you can have a scope ready when you need it.
