When filled with a viscous catheter lock solution they maintain a very high rate of patency* for several weeks. *Patency, especially for blood sampling, is highly dependent on the location of the intravascular tip. Both the thoracic and femoral rat models have the following features: Externalized polyethylene (PE) tubing catheter port: Flared for easy access with a blunted 23g hypodermic needle for sampling or infusion. Port is sealed with 0.025 " diameter stainless steel plug when not in use.
