becham calibration tube

Indicated for Sleeve Gastrectomy and Gastric Bypass.

The Becham Calibration Tube has been designed in consultation with leading Australian Bariatric Surgeons. After a number of attempts we came up the ideal calibration tube that is both firm enough and soft enough for easy use and patient safety.

The Becham Tube has two Lumens, which allows for safe suction of the stomach contents and the administration of Methadone Blue for leak

More importantly the Calibration Tubes is easy to position and will remain in place and not push back against the greater curvature of the stomach.

The calibration Tube is available in 34, 36, 38, 40 and 46 French.

  • Tube for administration of meth-blue to check integrity of staple line is located at the distal end of the catheter where it is needed
  • Tube for administering meth-blue is 2mm in diameter. This means less wastage and administration at the desired site only.
  • No need to remove reusable bogie and insert gastric catheter to check for leaks. Suction Tubing is standard allowing emptying of the stomach
