Such a CONTROL RESERVOIR or a prechamber allows the measurement of intraventricular pressure, the injection of medication and, if necessary, a valve control. Liqour can be removed and medication added by puncturing the silicone membrane with a cannula. The solid titanium base prevents the puncture with a cannula.
All MIETHKE CONTROL RESERVOIRS and prechambers are clearly visible in X-ray and MR compatible, i.e. magnetic resonance (MR) or computer tomography (CT) examinations can be performed without affecting the patient.
The reservoirs are designed for catheters with an inner diameter of approximately 1.2 mm and an outer diameter of approximately 2.5 mm (except LP prechamber).
