About the ebb™ Complete Tamponade System
ebb™ is a complete tamponade solution for postpartum hemorrhage. Designed by world-renowned maternal-fetal medicine specialists Michael A. Belfort and Gary A. Dildy, the ebb™ balloon is made of a malleable yet extremely strong material, allowing ebb™ to expand and conform to any uterine shape. ebb™ also features a vaginal balloon to control vaginal bleeding and act as an anchor to support the uterine balloon. External ports allow independent control of inflation, deflation, irrigation, and drainage.
About the jetty™ Vaginal Repair Balloon
jetty™ is indicated for use during episiotomy and vaginal laceration repair to temporarily prevent the postpartum discharge of fluids from the vagina in order to assist with the repair procedure. jetty™ provides clarity and cleanliness for a timely, effective repair, and it eliminates the need for vaginal packing with gauze or sponges.
