Spinal Needles for safe withdrawal of spinal fluid and injection of the anesthetic


Improve the needle tip geometry to reduce post-spinal headache after lumbar puncture.

Solution approach

The challenge was met through an atraumatic needle tip geometry with the strength necessary to penetrate the tough dura mata. Thin-walled, large-inner-diameter tubes and a highly transparent needle hub with side magnifier facilitate monitoring of the cerebral-spinal fluid backflow to confirm accurate needle placement.

Depending on the customer’s requirements, we can develop the right needle with either Pencil-Point or Quinke-type bevels.
