English term or phrase:suture storage
Aus der Gebrauchsanleitung eines Harnleiter-Stents:
"Insert an angiographic catheter or other appropriate device over the guidewire and into the bladder.
Mark the device at the skin site.
Slowly withdraw the device until the end is located in the renal pelvis.
Again, mark the device at the skin site.
The distance between the two marks plus an additional 2 cm is the approximate pigtail-to-pigtail length required for the Nephroureteral Stent Catheter.
To ease introduction of the Nephroureteral Stent Catheter, the tract may be dilated.
Remove slack in the retention suture by pulling it out gently until slight resistance is felt.
Straighten the pigtails prior to advancing the stiffening cannula into the stent catheter.
If using the flexible cannula for insertion, first insert the supplied obturator into the flexible cannula.
Then, gently advance the reinforced flexible cannula into the stent catheter...
Advance the stent catheter with stiffening cannula over the guidewire into the superficial part of the renal pelvis.
At the point of entry into the renal pelvis, the cannula is unlocked and held stationary while the stent catheter is advanced further until the distal tip is in the bladder.
Remove the stiffening cannula.
Slowly remove the guidewire while rotating the stent catheter clockwise to form the pigtails.
Pull the suture to fully close the locking pigtail.
Depending upon whether or not ***suture storage*** is desired, lock the pigtail as follows:
Locking the pigtail without storing suture:
Move the locking slide proximally until an audible "click" is heard.
The suture is now locked.
Trim away excess suture at the exit point at the proximal end of the hub..."
