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

1. Fixation Device

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

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 easy 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
