Catheter clearances

Catheters are thin flexible tubes inserted into a body cavity, duct, or vessel to allow drainage, provide nutrients or medication, enable dialysis, and obtain frequent blood samples. Catheters left inside the body, either temporarily or permanently, often require clearance procedures to unclog them, and strict protocols must be followed to help eliminate the risk of introducing microorganisms into the catheter lumen and hub, which can spread to the body and cause infection.

The doctors and trained staff of MIT can safely clear your catheter so you can get back to your life quickly and comfortably.
