Incorporated in the sleeve’s 15mm diameter flange is a Titanium Marker Ring for CT localization and two suture holes to keep the sleeve securely in place for future insertion of tandems.
Instructions for Use:
1. Choose an intrauterine sleeve of suitable uterine length.
2. Pursuant to the dilation of the cervix, insert the intrauterine sleeve, narrow end first, into the uterine canal until the flange touches the cervix.
