CA Front Apron – Urology

CA Front Apron – Urology

This CA Front Apron - Urology  is a specially designed apron for urology surgeons who typically examine and treat the patient while seated. Therefore, the lower part of the apron is split in three lower front panels for maximum comfort and functionality.

This Urology apron attaches to the body with two adjustable Velcro straps at the front waist area. You can choose between an elastic rear or velcro fastener (see images) that crosses over at the lower back. This style assists to transfer weight from shoulders to the waist area, reducing stress on the neck and back.

Comfortable shoulder pads and a standard thyroid collar is included with the purchase of this style. An integrated thyroid shield is optional.

The CA Front Apron - Urology with velcro fastener is available in three protection materials:

  • Light weight lead (Vector X),
  • Light weight, lead free,
  • Lead.

And in two protection thicknesses:

  • Front only: 0.50mm Pb
  • Front only: 0.35mm Pb

Embroidery options: Your name/ department or logo can be stitched in two locations - on the shoulder or on a pocket of the front apron. We also offer embroidery on the thyroid collar.

All aprons, selected accessories and patient protection products are available in three protection materials that differ in weight and materials.

Protection material: Vector X 

  • Is the lightest low lead protection material, only available through Medical Index;
  • Which is Made of lead, antimony and bismuth using a true bilayer construction;
  • Best suited for long medical procedures, e.g. in Catheter Labs and Theatres;
  • Tested to the lead equivalent (0.35mm & 0.50mm) by independent institutions.
  • Passes current (AS/ NZS 4543.3:2000) and new international standard (IEC 61331-3:2014) requiring aprons to be tested against a full range of kV (50kV to 150 kV).
  • Is the first light low lead that has been independently certified and tested to the lead equivalents 0.35mm & 0.50mm to cover radiation scatter and absorbed dose between 50kV to 150kV (IEC 61331-3:2014).

Protection material: Lead free

  • Is a light – same as Vector X – but lead free protection material which is purely made of antimony and bismuth;
  • Is best suited for mid and long medical procedures, e.g. Theatres;
  • Is tested to the lead equivalent 0.35mm & 0.50mm by independent institutions.
  • Meets the current standard (AS/NZS 4543.3:2000)
  • Passes new international standards (IEC 61331-3:2014) requiring aprons to be tested against a full range of kV (50kV to 150 kV).
  • It is the first light lead free material that has been independently certified and tested to the lead equivalents 0.35mm & 0.50mm to cover radiation scatter and absorbed dose between 50kV to 150kV (IEC 61331-3:2014).

Protection material: Lead

  • Is a traditional weight lead protective material for individuals who occasionally conduct short medical procedures, e.g. Veterinarian and dental applications;
  • Is also used where lead is the only option for safest radiation protection, e.g. Nuclear medicine;
  • Tested to the lead equivalent (0.35mm & 0.50mm) by independent institutions
  • Meets the current standard (AS/NZS 4543.3:2000)
  • Passes new international standards (IEC 61331-3:2014) requiring aprons to be tested against a full range of kV (50kV to 150 kV).

The weight guide presents approximate weights in kilograms and a lead equivalency of 0.50mm Pb at front, for the CA Front Apron in standard sizes. Generally, the apron weight depends on several variables such as:

  • Chosen apron style – partly or fully covered
  • Chosen lead equivalency – 0.50mm Pb/ 0.35mm Pb/ 0.25mm Pb
  • Chosen apron length depending on individual height of person
  • Deutsch Medical’s apron length is below the knee, whereas other brands offer above the knee
  • Chosen protection material and fabric
  • Sizing dimensions of supplier/ brand – e.g. our sizing is bigger and more generous in comparison to other brands
