The only Foley catheter with a micro-camera for visualization and navigation of the urethra for nurses. Also, it allows urologists to place a guidewire under direct vision rather than calling for a flexible scope.
Improve Patient Outcomes
Vision can reduce patient discomfort, pain, risk of injuries and infections, and other complications.
DirectVision avoids the costs of multiple complex placement procedures, corrective surgeries and can help to avoid HAC penalties.
The DirectVision® family of products is intended to:
• Reduce patient pain and injury associated with difficult catheterizations
• Reduce the frequency and costs of blind catheterization complications
• Enable more first-pass catheterizations
• Reduce UTIs resulting from difficult catheterizations
• Minimize revenue lost from patient transport due to an inability to catheterize
• Allow urologists to spend more time on higher revenue procedures

A difficult urinary catheter (DUC) placement is often escalated to a urology consult. Urology consults increase the cost to the patient and hospital, and can often delay the progress of the hospital visit. According to a recent prospective study of difficult urinary catheter insertions at a tertiary care centers in Northern Alberta, significant urethral injury as a result of catheterization attempts occurred 32 percent of the time. Also, the average time from an identified difficult urinary catheterization to a urology consult was greater than 4 hours and 20 minutes. Shortening the waiting time for urology consults for basic Foley catheter placements will allow for better outcomes, more efficient patient care and improved patient satisfaction.
A visually guided catheter can increase the success rate of placing a Foley catheter in a DUC situation. Additionally, internal injury that often occurs with blind catheterizations can be avoided in most patients.
The placement of a DirectVision® catheter is a reimbursable procedure when performed by a physician or mid-level provider.
