separprocathTM

Separprocath

SEPARPROCATH DRAPE offers maximum protection against radiation for the care staff and the doctor working at the table in addition to the usual protection measures (i.e. X-Ray protection panel type.)
Invasive cardiology and radiology are widespread techniques that use X-ray radiations. During these procedures the operators are exposed to a variable dose of radiation. As these exposures are known to be harmful to health, we developed protective shield the SEPARPROVASC in order to decrease operator’s exposure during invasive procedures.
Specific Electromagnetic combined Protection drape Against scattered Radiation (RX) (SEPAR) during cardiologic and radiologic invasive procedures.

Advantages

  • Easy to use and to install drapes
  • Not requiring any additional protection against X-Rays
  • Less waste to dispose, no need for any additional protection

Recommended for

  • Cardiac catheterization.
  • Angioplasty and Structural Intervention (CIA, FOP).
  • Electrophysiology study.
  • Ablations.

Statement

The development of cardiac catheterization procedures has been associated with increasing numbers of radiation-induced diseases in the medical staff, ranging from "benign" subcapsular cataracts to a presumed higher risk of malignancies. Interventional cardiologists and room staff are exposed to two main sources of radiation:x-ray tube leakage and scatter radiation from the patient.

Results

SEPARPROCATHTM was associated with a lower operator radiation exposure corresponding to a RE relative risk reduction of 81% and 99% respectively. Similar reductions were observed for operator and nurse cumulative doses. No difference was found in Dose Area Product.

Goal

We sought to compare the radiation exposure (RE) of the cardiac catheterization room staff using SEPARPROCATHTM, a novel radio-protective drape versus standard shielding equipment.

Conclusion

SEPARPROCATHTM is a novel, lead-free, radioprotection drape, that significantly decreases radiation exposure of the medical staff during cardiac catheterization procedures while guaranteeing patient safety.
