We’re walking you through a procedure from start to finish in a four-part series that takes a closer look at our comprehensive product portfolio. However you choose to get access, Cook has you covered with a diverse selection of wire guides, needles, and catheters.
If you’re performing a ureteroscopy (URS), you may choose to start with a hybrid wire guide and one of our ureteral access catheters.
- The Motion™ Hybrid Wire Guide is constructed with a nitinol core and a stainless steel PTFE jacket. Essentially, it’s two wire guides in one. The flexible nitinol distal end has 5 cm of hydrophilic coating and a radiopaque tungsten tip for fluoroscopic visualization. The proximal end of the wire guide is tapered to accommodate scope placement.

- The Dual Lumen Ureteral Access Catheter may eliminate the need for multiple catheterizations and is used for the injection of contrast medium and anesthetic gel and/or safety wire placement. Available options include a Flexi-Tip® tip configuration, an AQ® hydrophilic coating, and a radiopaque marker.
- The Open-End Flexi-Tip® Ureteral Catheter is used for access and catheterization of the urinary tract to deliver contrast media or irrigation, drain fluids, navigate a tortuous ureter, and advance or exchange a wire guide.
- The Kumpe Access Catheter is composed of a polymer reinforced with a stainless steel braided wire, which provides control, pushability, and torque response. It is used for access and catheterization of the urinary tract, including the delivery of contrast media, the navigation of a tortuous ureter, and the access, advancement, or exchange of wire guides.
Opting for a percutaneous approach?
- The Amplatz Fixed Core Wire Guide, constructed of stainless steel, is used to establish a tract and assist in the placement of medical devices. Choose between stiff, extra-stiff, and ultra-stiff options. Tip configurations include flexible and double flexible.
- The Disposable Two-Part Trocar Needle, available in standard and EchoTip® options, is used for percutaneous access. The EchoTip needle is designed to provide enhanced visualization of the needle tip under ultrasound.
- The Amplatz Needle Holder with Silicone Inserts is used to direct standard Cook disposable needles during needle puncture access procedures. It prevents the stylet from backing out of the cannula during puncture and also keeps your hands from radiation exposure during the puncture procedure.
- The Renal Access Cobra Catheter is used percutaneously to direct a 0.038 inch (0.97 mm) diameter wire guide to a specific renal area for the delivery of contrast media through the catheter and for the access, advancement, or exchange of wire guides. The catheter features Torcon® catheter material with an inner stainless steel braid.
