This video shows the technique for combined ultrasound and xray screening insertion of a 12 French locking pigtail nephrostomy catheter.

A large bore 12F tube was used in this situation for chronic sepsis. Te locking mechanism helps prevent tube dislodgement. The tube is also placed in a stoma bag to also reduce the chances of it being caught and pulled out.

The tube used was a Cook Mac-Loc catheter

Dear Dr Haslam

Love the concept of the bag, to prevent tube migration, which I find is common in everyday practice.

Does the patient have any problems with skin irritation if use d for a long time?

Do you happen to know the manufacturer of the drain fix/flange or does it come with the Cook drain?
