SmartPort+™ brings together the Vortex™ and Endexo technologies to provide the Port your patient deserves.
73% fewer port occlusions1
The Vortex™ technology includes a round port chamber to eliminate dead spaces and sludge build up. It also has a tangential off-centre outlet that helps create a more effective flushing action to hyper cleanse the entire port chamber.
Low catheter related thrombosis rate2
The Endexo technology is a permenant, non-eluting, surface modifying polymer that is “blended” into the polyurethane from which the catheter is made. It’s the same technology used in the BioFlo PICCs and Midlines and provides a catheter material that is more resistant to Thrombosis accumulation.Read more…
