Single Shot Nerve Block and Plane Block Needles


Echogenic, Non-echogenic, Stimulating and Non-stimulating Single Shot Nerve Block and Plane Block Needles

Pajunk offers a wide range of single shot nerve blocks needles, starting with our best-selling echogenic SonoPlex needles through special echogenic SonoTAP needles for plane blocks to stimulation-only UniPlex NanoLine needles.

Needle shaft and tip identification are major prerequisites to avoid nerve or blood vessel damage when performing ultrasound guided Regional Anesthesia procedures. 1 Many needles do not provide the necessary reflective qualities to allow a good and safe decision basis on needle positioning, especially at steep angles. 2,3,6 The patented “Cornerstone Reflectors”, that are the major feature of all Pajunk echogenic needles, solve this problem and provide the best ultrasound visibility possible, irrespective of the insertion angle. 4,5,6
