A reverse-thermosensitive gel that forms a plug in the ureter to prevent stone migration during lithotripsy, making stone cases more predictable.
Effective Antiretropulsion Device
- Prevents stone migration during lithotripsy1
- Completely occludes the ureter, preventing migration of stone fragments of all sizes
- Increases fragmentation efficiency, as demonstrated in a bench study2
- May be used with laser, pneumatic and ultrasonic lithotripters
Unique Antiretropulsion Device
- Gel rather than mechanical device
- Gel conforms to the ureter
- After the gel is placed, the catheter is removed, freeing the field
Easy to Place, Easy to Remove
- Place with 3F catheter under direct visualization or with a 5F catheter under fluoroscopic guidance
- Flush with conventional irrigation
- Dissolved 100% of the time in clinical studies1,3
This product contains no detectable latex.

In a randomized, prospective, multi-center study, the BackStop Device group had a lower rate of retropulsion (9%) vs. the control group (53%).1
Backstop Gel reduced the occurrence of stone migration in ureteroscopy with ISWL cases.
