Renacidin is indicated for
dissolution of bladder calculi of the struvite or apatite variety by local
intermittent irrigation through a urethral catheter or cystostomy tube as an
alternative or adjunct to surgical procedures.
Renacidin is also indicated for
use as an intermittent irrigating solution to prevent encrustations of
indwelling urethral catheters and cystostomy tubes.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Renacidin for local irrigation
within the lower urinary tract is available in single-use 30 mL containers.
Prepare and Administer the Dose
Step 1: Inspect Renacidin
visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration. If
particulate matter or discoloration are observed, do not administer.
Step 2: Remove the plastic tab
connected to the conical tip of the Renacidin container by twisting the plastic
tab. See Figure 1.
Step 3: Connect the conical tip
of the Renacidin container to the end of the urethral catheter or cystostomy
tube. See Figure 2.
Step 4: Squeeze the Renacidin
container to expel the entire contents into the urethral catheter or cystostomy
tube. See Figure 3.
For Dissolution of Bladder
Instill 30 mL (one container)
of Renacidin into the bladder via a urethral catheter or cystostomy tube. Clamp
the urethral catheter or cystostomy tube for 30 to 60 minutes. Release the
clamp and drain the bladder. Repeat the instillation procedure 4 to 6 times a
day. Monitor for dissolution of calculi.
For Prevention of
Encrustations in Urethral Catheters and Cystostomy Tubes: Instill 30 mL (one
container) of Renacidin into the urethral catheter or cystostomy tube. Clamp
the urethral catheter or cystostomy tube for 10 minutes. Remove the clamp and
drain the bladder. Repeat the instillation procedure 3 times a day.
Renacidin is available as a
sterile, non-pyrogenic irrigation solution in 30 mL single-use, low density,
polyethylene containers, supplied in boxes of 30 containers each. Exposure of
Renacidin to heat or cold should be minimized. Renacidin should be stored at
room temperature, 59° to 86°F (15° to 30°C). Avoid excessive heat or cold (keep
from freezing). Brief exposure to temperatures of up to 40°C or temperatures
down to 5°C does not adversely affect the product.
