“Current literature favours ultrasound guided paracentesis over the traditional blind technique with a significant reduction in both the rate of unsuccessful aspiration of fluid and in the bleeding complications related to this procedure”1
The ability to place a needle and catheter within the ‘safety zone’ in an ascites drainage procedure can be complicated by the presence of gut sliding. Neo-hydro is designed to be clearly seen during ultrasound guided procedures. A very short distance between the tip of the stylet and catheter helps to reduce the risk of complications even further.
