Artificial Canine Urethral Sphincters
Description: This device is designed specifically for aiding in the relief of incontinence and proven to be most effective when used in conjunction with a subcutaneous access port for precutaneously controlled incremental hydraulic occlusion of the pelvic urethra. They are constructed using only Medical Grade Silicones and are designed for extended implant times.

$170.00

These occluders are available in a range of lumen sizes from 6mm to 16mm, and in two cuff widths, 11mm & 14mm. Artificial Urethral Sphincter Occluders are recommended for use in conjunction with an SQ port for precutaneously controlled, incremental hydraulic occlusion of the occluder over time. We recommend using normal Saline, hypertonic Saline, Dextrose solution, Sodium Hyaluronate or other biocompatible liquids with sufficient density to achieve the desired degree of occlusion.

Artificial Urethral Sphincter Kits
We now offer the Artificial Urethral Sphincters for Veterinary applications, (AUS-) in a more cost effective Kit form which includes every item normally used for this procedure. The kits come to you STERILE and ready to use.

Each Kit is pre-sterilized and contains the following items:

One Artificial Urethral Sphincter, any size

One Le Grande Access Port, either size with blue boot to fit the AUS catheter.

Two Huber Point Needles, 22gauge x .75”packaged individually

One Huber Point Needle right angle infusion set, 22gauge



For ordering purposes, please refer to these kits as AUS-Kit and state the lumen and cuff size you desire, e.g. AUS-Kit-8x14. All AUS-Kits will ship with the Le Grande CP-4 port, unleass specified otherwise, e.g. CP-6/small canine or feline or CP-2/Large Canine.


All items will continue to be offered individually, as in the past, including the ports (any of three sizes, CP-2, 4, or 6), Huber Point Needles and Huber Point Needle Infusion sets. All items come to you sterile. The reusable Back flush/fill catheter is offered separately, pre-sterilized for $27.00. We highly recommend adding this item to your first purchase of the AUS or the HS system. It is re-usable and will make the preparation of the occluder much easier, particularly if this is the first time using this system.


Please consider these options and feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am happy to help. If you would like other configurations or variations of this kit, or other items included to better suit your needs, just say the word. I will work it out and get right back to you.
