TSUI Set for Peripheral Nerve and Epidural Stimulation
Dr. Ban C.H. Tsui, in co-operation with Pajunk GmbH, has developed and patented a catheter kit that expands the scope of treatment in peripheral and epidural regional anesthesia through its versatile functionalities:
Used to conduct the Tsui-Test, which, with the aid of the stimulating Catheter together with ultrasonic guidance of an injection of glucose mixture, allows for the exact determination of the catheter position.
Able to trace the spread of the injected solutions accurately with the aid of a NERVE STIMULATOR, both in the epidural and peripheral space.
Stimulong SONO Catheter
A steel stylet, which can be introduced or retracted as required, provides the catheter with the necessary stiffness along its complete length.
5% glucose solution (D5W)
enlarges/expands the perineural space and eases the onward progression of the catheter
induces motoric response, which can be continuously monitored
path for D5W can be traced up to the peripheral nerve by means of ultrasonic surveillance.
Inject with Saline solution.
