Kimberly-Clark Health Care Presents an OR-Live™ Premiere Webcast - Endoscopic Placement Method of Balloon-Retained Feeding Tubes
Date:5/4/2011

ROSWELL, Ga., May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark Health Care today posted a sneak peek preview of an upcoming OR-Live™ webcast of its innovative method for percutaneous endoscopic placement of balloon-retained enteral feeding tubes on its website www.kcdigestivehealth.com. The procedure is performed using the Kimberly-Clark MIC, MIC-KEY Introducer Kit by John Fang, M.D., clinical director of gastroenterology at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center and associate professor of medicine at the University of Utah. Stephen McClave, M.D., director of clinical nutrition at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, moderates the procedure and explains critical aspects of the initial placement of enteral feeding tubes. The full 22-minute OR-Live premiere webcast will take place to a select audience of gastroenterologist and medical professional media that pre-register on its website www.kcdigestivehealth.com.

During the procedure, Dr. Fang uses the Kimberly-Clark MIC, MIC-KEY Introducer Kit to facilitate the primary placement of a MIC Jejunal Feeding Tube on a 61-year-old male patient with perforated diverticulitis and difficulty feeding due to a tracheostomy. The Kimberly-Clark MIC, MIC-KEY Introducer Kit simplifies placement of balloon-retained tubes. The kit offers lowered risk for complications other procedures may pose (i.e., longer hospital stay, punctured colon, tissue damage, etc.).

The kit features tools designed to facilitate easier feeding tube placement including:  

  • Saf-T-Pexy with T-fasteners to secure the stomach to the abdominal wall.
  • A proprietary serial dilator with peel-away sheath eliminating the need to repeat passing over a guidewire for each successive dilation.
