Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0141858A2] The present invention features a catheter suitable for drug delivery. The catheter comprises a catheter body comprising a proximal and a distal end, and defining a drug delivery lumen and a stylet lumen. The stylet lumen comprises a distal end configured to permit a stylet to abut the stylet lumen distal end, and a proximal aperture which is distal to the proximal end of the catheter, providing entry of the stylet into the side of the catheter. The stylet lumen is adapted for slidably receiving a stylet which can be used to guide the catheter to the intended site in the body of a subject and thus to facilitate implantation of the catheter.
