I emailed Marlen this week hoping they could confirm they are taking on the production of the Weber and Judd 31F, Silicon catheters but I have not received a reply. My email is below:
Vanessa and I are WOC Nurses and we manage care of newly created Kpouches. We have used your Marlen catheters for patients after they successfully recover from their 3 week post-op. However during the first 3 weeks, these client need a longer, softer catheter for continuous intubation.
Previously, Weber and Judd Co. provided flexible, silicon rubber catheters that were 31 Fr and 24" in length but they have discontinued manufacturing this product. After speaking with many patients and colleagues, I learned that Marlen Co. was potentially manufacturing this style of catheter.
Can you please confirm if you will be manufacturing this style and can you share any other information concerning your continent catheters? Kpouch Continent Ileostomates will forever need these products and the whole community is grateful to Marlen for your products.
We can only hope you will take on manufacturing this vital, flexible silicon rubber catheter as well.
