Use this one-stage esophageal balloon dilation feeding tube for palliative management of benign esophageal stricture and for feeding of cats and dogs. This is an effective, single-procedure alternative to repeated expensive balloon dilations and incorporates the esophageal feeding tube.
DESIGN: The E-tube has a double balloon surrounding the tube. A compliant outer balloon covers a non-compliant inner balloon for optimal, low profile, long term, routine at home dilation of strictures.
BE-tube is clear, non-irritating polyurethane ideal for long term use.
Lateral ports minimize catheter occlusion.
Radiopaque line for x-ray visualization aids exact placement.
Accessory kit contains 2 Hydrophilic Nitinol wires with steerable tip - .035in x 80cm and .035in x 150cm, a Centesis Valve (#175450NB) and a stopcock (#2405).
Items needed for placement and operationof the BE-Tube are the accessory kit (#BE-ACC), peel-away introducer, and the inflation device (#BE-BIG60)

Applicator for the simple and fast placement of an esophageal feeding tube made from polyurethane
The thermoplastic polyurethane causes very little tissue trauma and is therefore also suitable for long term application
An embedded x-ray contrast stripe makes it possible to check the tube position
For the special requirements of tube feeding, the tube is equipped with a funnel attachment and a two-part sealing cap. Blended food is applied via the funnel attachment. Subsequent rinsing of the tube, or the administration of thin liquid nutrition, water or medication, takes place via the Luer attachment in the sealing cap.
The tube is suitable for the administration of industrially produced convalescence pet food
