Balloon Tamponade Medical Cuff Balloon Made By This Blow Molding Machine
Balloon tamponade usually refers to the use of balloons inserted into the esophagus, stomach or uterus, and inflated to
alleviate or stop refractory bleeding.
Esophagus or stomach
When inserted into the esophagus or stomach, balloon catheters are intended to stop bleeding such as from vascular structures—including
esophageal varices and gastric varices—in the upper gastrointestinal tract.
There are many different types of balloons manufactured for the purpose of tamponading upper gastrointestinal bleeds, each with different
volume capacities and aspiration ports tailored for the specific application.
- Sengstaken-Blakemore tube, with three lumens (two balloons and a gastric aspiration port). Pressure can be applied to gastric and esophageal varices by balloon
inflation and traction.
- Linton tube, with a large gastric balloon, and gastric and esophageal aspirates
- Minnesota four-lumen tube, with esophageal and gastric balloons, and esophageal and gastric aspirates.
Balloon tamponade is considered a bridge to more definitive treatment modalities, and is usually administered in the Emergency Department
or in the intensive-care unit setting, due to the illness of patients and the complications of the procedure.
In the uterus, balloon tamponade can alleviate or stop postpartum hemorrhage. Inflating a Sengstaken–Blakemore tube in the uterus successfully treats
atonic postpartum hemorrhage refractory to medical management in approximately 80% of cases. Such procedure is relatively simple, inexpensive and
has low surgical morbidity. A uterus balloon is a balloon tamponade specifically constructed for uterine postpartum hemorrhage.
Uterus Balloon Tamponade, designed for postpartum hemorrhage, is an effective life-saving balloon.
