Catheter for lumbar drainage with all-round protection and safety connector

The catheter is designed for temporary external lumbar drainage. It optimises the VentriGuard® product concept for protection against catheter-associated infection.

As a solution for controlling pathogenic germs, VentriGuard technology uses very small amounts of ionised silver, which is fully integrated in a non-metal porous molecular structure.

The antimicrobial effect of silver, both against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, has been impressively verified in specialist literature.

After the catheter has been placed, the hydrophilic mandrin can be easily removed.

The patient safety is increased as any catheter dislocation is avoided. In addition, the length markings make precise positioning and subsequent checking of the position easier.
