The new ‘dual diameter’ design micro-tip spinal needle combines the stiffness of a large gauge needle with a smaller diameter in the tip area, allowing an excellent flush back of spinal fluid, offering less technique failures and reduction of dura trauma and PDPH rate.
Greater internal diameter along most of the needle length improves ease of injection, and added safety with the centimetre marking on the needle tubing, which allows a greater evaluation of the depth of penetration of the needle. The 360° magnifying ‘window’ in the hub allows quicker recognition of spinal fluid.
The atraumatic, conical-elliptic flexible needle tip reduces the risk of bone injury as it has been designed to bend 180 degrees without breaking.
The double colour code on the stylet hub reminds the user of the double diameter of the needle and makes identification much easier.
