VentriGuard® Lumbar CatheterPRO with inserted hydrophilic mandrin

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.

With an inserted hydrophilic mandrin, the VentriGuard® Lumbar CatheterPRO is ready for use more quickly. This not only saves time, it minimises the risk of undetected contamination and facilitates positioning.

The extra-long Tuohy cannula ensures precise placement even in obese patients. At the same time, thespecially profiled cannula eye protects the catheter from damage.

With its directly inserted mandrin is ready for use more quickly and minimises
the risk of infection due to undetected contamination before the procedure.

The hydrophilic mandrin can be easily removed to avoid catheter dislocation.

The fine scaling with numerical marking helps to place the lumbar catheter precisely and simplifies postoperative position control.

The highlighted distal marking indicates when the catheter reaches the spinal space.

The special profiling of the cannula eye allows atraumatic penetration into the tissue and at the same time prevents damage to the catheter.

The extra-long Tuohy cannula is suitable for safe use even in obese patients.
