Deflector

Ensures a safe deflection of the ventricular catheter

Burrhole Deflectors

A Burrhole Deflector in the shunt system acts as a right-angled guide for the ventricular catheter in the borehole.

The Burrhole Deflector ensures that the ventricular catheter is deflected at a right angle to the borehole and seals the borehole completely. Furthermore the Burrhole Deflector allows the surgeon to choose the length of catheter to be inserted into the cranium, prior to implantation.

All MIETHKE Burrhole Deflectors  are MR compatible, i.e. magnetic resonance (MR) or computer tomography (CT) examinations can be performed without affecting the patient.

The Burrhole Deflector is designed for catheters with an inner diameter of approx. 1.2 mm and an outer diameter of approx. 2.5 mm.

Burrhole Deflector

For the treatment of HC in adults

In the standard version for adults, the lower heel has a diameter of 9.5 mm. According to this, the drill hole should have a diameter of 10 mm or larger. Through the two lateral holes, the borehole diverter can be fixed in the tissue with ligatures.

 

Pediatric Burrhole Deflector

For the treatment of HC in children

In addition to the standard version, a Pediatric Burrhole Deflector use available. Its dimensions are smaller so as to meet to the physical needs of younger patients.
