SPINAL ANAESTHESIA - Sprotte® Atraumatic Needle aka Standard Sprotte®

Avoid Dural Leakage

The Standard SPROTTE® spinal needle started the trend towards atraumatic dural puncture. It reliably prevents dural leakage and therefore a large portion of post-puncture headache and probably all severe complications of CSF LOSS (Labyrinthine hearing impairment, Abducens Paresis, Subdural Haematoma, Pnuemencephalus).

M A G N I F Y I N G  H U B 25G,27G and 29G Sprotte needles are supplied with a unique Magnifying Hub. Recognition of flashback is greatly facilitated by virtue of the magnifying effect produced by the special design of the see through hub. In addition, dead space in the forward interior of the hub has been reduced to an absolute minimum, further reducing the time of recognition of flashback. I N T R O D U C E R  N E E D L E
Due to its "non-cutting" point geometry, the Sprotte needle does not puncture the skin as freely as does a conventional Quincke needle. Therefore it is advised to puncture the skin prior to inserting the Sprotte needle. An introducer needle is offered as one option in performing this task– the introducer needle is placed first, followed by the Sprotte needle which is placed through (inside) the introducer needle. See Introducer illustrated.
