Cholangiography Catheters

Coastal Life Systems' cholangiography catheter sets greatly simplify imaging the gallbladder, liver and bile ducts. As cholangiography and laparoscopic cholecystectomy have supplanted intravenous imaging and open surgery, increasingly more options are available for the practitioner looking for a cholangiography catheter. At Coastal Life Systems, we've channeled over 25 years of experience in creating high quality medical devices into the development of our efficient, accurate catheter set.


Use the Coastal Life Systems cholangiography rigid catheter to introduce dye into bile and cystic ducts in preparation for the removal of gallbladder, or for identifying gallstones, tumors and other blockages of the bile duct. Catheters are essential for use in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and ercutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) as a delivery system for contrast media.


Our cholangiography catheters feature a slim stainless steel design that integrates seamlessly into your workflow. With a working length of 23 cm, the catheter can be adapted for a wide range of laparoscopic imaging purposes. The Coastal Life Systems cholangiography catheter features an angled tip for easy insertion and alignment, uniform clamping to reduce the risk of leakage and accidental removal, and a grooved handle that provides superior control throughout the procedure. The rigid catheter tube is an oval shape, as opposed to round, in order to provide leak proof ligation.


The Coastal Life Systems cholangiography catheter is a size four on the French Catheter Scale, meaning it has an outside diameter of 1.33 mm. The catheter can be inserted using a 5 mm trocar or a 14 gauge Angiocath™ device. Because of its small size, the catheter is ideal for use in laparoscopy and other minimally invasive procedures where accessibility is essential.
