ELITE Bi-Caval Catheter Line

The patented Avalon ELITE Bi-Caval Dual Lumen Catheter is indicated for simultaneous venous drainage and reinfusion of blood via the internal jugular vein during extracorporeal life support procedures.

The catheter is designed to increase the efficiency of blood gas exchange by draining blood from both the upper and lower body while simultaneously reinfusing it directly into the heart. Furthermore it is designed to minimize recirculation and maximize blood flow while providing a less invasive solution for the patients.

The Avalon ELITE advantages:

  • Inserted into the internal jugular vein this patent device is able to match the body’s natural flow ratios by simultaneously removing blood from both, the superior vena cava and inferior vena cava and returning blood to the right atrium
  • Large family of sizes broadens clinical applications for neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients
  • Constructed with an exclusive material that combines the durability of polyurethane and the flexibility and bio-stability of silicone
