Our Best Nephrostomy Bags

There are numerous reasons someone would need a nephrostomy bag because nephrostomy serves several purposes. The most common purpose is to drain urine if the ureter has an obstruction that cannot be reached through retrograde access. Nephrostomy can also reach the upper urinary tract for endourologic procedures, send chemotherapy to the renal collection system, and diagnose issues such as obstructions and congenital abnormalities.

Nephrostomy bags are key to the process of removing the urine. Each day, users inspect the catheter and the bag as well as drain the bag. Many different types of nephrostomy bags are available, and we have plenty of options to choose from. The nephrostomy bag process may seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be.
Renal obstructions can be dangerous, but luckily, we have products that can help. A nephrostomy creates an opening in the kidneys to either temporarily or permanently drain the urine out of them. The collection system of the kidney is pierced with a needle, allowing the surgeon to then send a guidewire through it to insert a tube. The procedure takes about an hour. The first version of this surgery was performed over 100 years ago, so the procedure is thoroughly researched and relatively routine.
