EpiSpin Lock

Unique CSE Needle System with Locking Mechanism, Back-eye Tuohy and SPROTTE needle

With EpiSpin Lock, Pajunk combines two techniques into one product: atraumatic spinal anaesthesia using the SPROTTE® needle, and continuous epidural catheter placement using the Tuohy needle. The EpiSpin Lock offers smooth spinal puncture while minimising needle tip damage through the back-eye opening on the distal end of the Tuohy needle. With the integrated locking mechanism, the Sprotte needle is stabilised for the injection of anaesthetic while reducing the risk of a needle displacement.

EpiSpin Lock Overview

EpiSpin Lock Features & Advantages

1. Unique Locking System

  • Easily fixate the Sprotte needle in desired position. After spinal puncture, simply spin/rotate the locking mechanism to remove the Sprotte needle for catheter insertion through the Tuohy
  • Allows for single-handed locking of the Sprotte needle
  • Allows for 360° rotation of the Sprotte needle for optimal needle eye positioning
  • Stepless fixation mechanism
  • Optional: Available without Locking System as EpiSpin

2. Back-Eye Opening

  • Additional distal opening in the Tuohy tip geometry for optimal positioning of the Sprotte needle
  • No bending of spinal needle over Tuohy tip to minimise the chance of needle tip damage
  • Designed only for Sprotte needle to pass, not the Epidural catheter
  • Spinal puncture needle extends maximum 14mm

3. Atraumatic Tip Design

  • The ogive shaped tip significantly reduces the risk of PDPH and the rounded edges of the lateral eye minimise trauma to the dura mater
  • Minimises chance of PDPH
  • Consistent tactile feedback

4. Magnifying Hub

  • Clear, magnifying needle hub allows for visualisation of blood or CSF
  • Easier detection of CSF flashback

5. Outlet Marking

  • Marking on the Sprotte needle shaft indicates the exit of the needle tip through the back-eye opening
  • Simplifies positioning of the Sprotte needle

6. Precision-Ground Metal Stylet

  • Standard metal stylet with flush grinding for greater stability of the needle
  • Flush ends of metal stylet and needle reduce the risk of tissue displacing
