Unique CSE Needle System with Fixation Device, Back-eye Tuohy and SPROTTE® Needle


Unique CSE Needle System with Fixation Device, Back-eye Tuohy and SPROTTE® needle

The EpiSpin SAFETY needles come with an fixation device, which stabilise the Sprotte needle for the injection of anaesthetic while reducing the risk of a needle displacement. Due to the atraumatic needle tip design of the Sprotte needle, EpiSpin SAFETY offers smooth spinal puncture while minimising needle tip damage through the back-eye opening on the distal end of the Tuohy needle.

EpiSpin SAFETY Overview

EpiSpin SAFETY Features & Advantages

Fixation Device

  • Easily fixate the Sprotte needle in desired position.
  • Allows for 360° rotation of the Sprotte needle for optimal needle eye positioning

Back-Eye Opening

  • Designed only for Sprotte needle to pass, not the Epidural catheter
  • Spinal puncture needle extends maximum 14mm

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 PDPH1

  • Easier detection of CSF flashback

Outlet Marking
