Our Solution

Save time and improve patient comfort with the patented SOLO-DEX Fascile® catheter for Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block (CPNB). The patented Fascile® Catheter System overcomes the constraints that prevent you from providing a continuous block to every patient. Designed by actively practicing anesthesiologists for all anesthesiologists. Improves self-administered, non-opiate, postoperative pain management.

Why SOLO-DEX Fascile® CPNB?

SOLO-DEX Fascile® cPNB is inserted using one hand, by a single operator, using ultra-low doses of the local anesthetic solution, and without the need for sterile drapes or gloves. Patients report fewer side effects such as phrenic involvement, Horner’s syndrome, hoarseness, and excessive numbness. It also lowers the need for opioids and often eliminates them completely. This continuous pain management reduces doctor visits and hospitalizations due to uncontrolled pain.

  • 5,000+ patients treated
  • FDA cleared (K151072) and the CE marked
  • US patent 8986283 and other patents pending

Fast & Simple Procedure

The SOLO-DEX Fascile®cPNB simplifies and accelerates cPNB placement; improving patient comfort and post-procedure pain management. Patients report the need for opioids is drastically reduced and often eliminated altogether.

With the SOLO-DEX Fascile® device, placing the catheter is a simple five-minute procedure, it is as easy as inserting an IV and requires no specialized training.

Our device can be placed with one hand, freeing your second hand to manage the ultrasound probe, without needing an assistant. The patented design diminishes catheter movement concerns and limits occlusion, precisely addressing the patient’s pain management needs.

How Does It Work?

A patented combination of carefully designed features makes placing a SOLO-DEX Fascile® cPNB fast and simple, ensuring the block is effective.

  • Curved over the needle catheter with multiple distal holes retains its shape, allows for less dislodgement and improved position retention, while optimizing delivery of pain medication to the target nerves.
  • Includes a Touhy Tipped Needle - a standard for the administration of local anesthetic solution near peripheral nerves.
  • The stimulator attachment clip allows for optional nerve stimulation.

Patient Testimonial

B.B. - Rotator Cuff Surgery

“The catheter nerve block provided continuous pain relief. I used the system for four days after the operation. I was able to begin physical therapy two days post-op which sped up my recovery process. I never felt the need to take the opioid medication that was prescribed by my doctor. I removed the catheter myself at home and returned the pump in the pre-paid postage box. The system was very easy to use and lessened my anxiety regarding pain from the surgery.”
