Cook Medical Launches SialoCath™ Salivary Duct Catheter

Clinicians who treat obstructive salivary gland disorders now have the option of a specialised catheter designed to irrigate the salivary duct and flush out stone fragments. Cook Medical’s SialoCath™ Salivary Duct Catheter is a flexible, soft-tipped, single-lumen catheter indicated for use in the submandibular or parotid glands. It can be inserted into a salivary duct over a wire guide or through a Kolenda Introducer Sheath.

"SialoCath provides clinicians with a minimally invasive tool for treating patients during in-office or surgical sialendoscopy procedures," said Thomas Cherry, global leader of Cook’s Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) clinical division.

The development of this catheter is part of Cook’s long-standing commitment to creating innovative devices that fulfill clinical needs.

SialoCath is one device in a growing suite of Cook Medical sialendoscopy access and interventional tools that are now available to clinicians in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and North America.
