A4353 is a kit, which includes a catheter and all supplies necessary for a single, sterile insertion (see below). Code A4353 may be used if any of the following 1, 2 or 3 is supplied:
- A single sterile package containing both an intermittent urinary catheter and all necessary insertion/collection supplies;
- A sterile intermittent urinary catheter plus a separately-packaged sterile kit containing all necessary insertion/collection supplies;
- A sterile "no-touch" type of catheter system
The product described in #3 is a single-catheter system that is functionally equivalent to a complete sterile insertion kit (A4353) containing a catheter and the additional components as described in the previous paragraph. In order to be coded as A4353, a "no-touch" type of catheter system must be a sterile, all-inclusive, self-contained system capable of accomplishing intermittent catheterization with sterile technique without the use of additional supplies such as gloves, lubricant, collection chamber, etc.
