IntraLong Kit for Countinuous Spinal Anaesthesia
The continuous spinal anaesthesia achieves with a minimal amount of anaesthetics an immediate and maximal pain relief. The SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula of PAJUNK® makes this technique even more gentle and safe by transferring the essential advantages of the SPROTTE® cannula into this continuous range of application. The SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula has also an atraumatic tip design and a lateral orifice. The fundamental difference: The lateral opening of the SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula located far towards to the cone of the tip.
The complete IntraLong Set consists of a SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula, catheter, filter, adapter and Luer- syringe.
The advantages in detail:
- The SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula minises post-puncture headaches and post-spinal complications such as the low frequency hearing loss, stiffness of the neck, nausea and vomiting. Its atraumatic cannula tip causes comparatively little tissue damages. It guarantees a perfect sealing of the catheter through the fibre of the Dura Mater and prevents therewith the reason for post-spinal complications, the loss of liquor.
- The SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula permits a controlled guidance of the catheter. The catheter is automatically directed upwards of the puncture level into the spinal space. This ensures an ideal dispersion of the anaesthetic and the quickest possible effect in the lumbal and thoracal region.
- The edges of the lateral orifice of the SPROTTE® SPECIAL cannula are rounded down. Therefore the catheter cannot been cut off, even under the most unfavorable conditions.
A SPROTTE® cannula and a Tuohy-cannula penetrate the multi-layered texture of the spinal dura. With the Tuohy-cannula, the exertion of pressure and the application of tension to the tissue of the dura inflict a large laceration, as it may be seen, whereas the SPROTTE® cannula merely causes a minimal defect. The dura seals here the catheter ingress optimally.
