Procedure Kit/Trays, Angiography, Digital
Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for radiologic procedures intended to obtain digital images of the blood vessels of and/or around the heart (i.e., a digital angiography procedure). Items in these kits usually include gauge needles, an introducer needle, plastic syringes, anesthetics (e.g., xylocaine), scalpels, a high pressure stopcock and connecting tubing, gauze sponges, and fenestrated drapes; kits may also include disposable towels, a povidone-iodine packet, swab sticks, puncture site bandage, and a sterile indicator. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Digital angiography procedure kits and trays are intended for use to prepare the patient undergoing the digital radiographic visualization of the arteries of the heart and sometimes of other particular organ, system, or body part.
