Prechambers

As versatile as borehole reservoirs and lying flat on the skull

MIETHKE Prechambers

In addition to a shunt system a prechamber/CONTROL RESERVOIR can be positioned on the top of the skull.

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).

 

 

PRECHAMBER

The prechamber is built with a diameter of 20 mm and is available either with two connections or one connection and a distal catheter.
 

 

CONTROL RESERVOIR

Weiterlesen
 

The CONTROL RESERVOIR has a non-return valve in the proximal part, which allows CSF to be pumped only in the draining direction.
In addition to targeted drainage in the distal direction, this mechanism also allows a control of the distal drainage part (reservoir difficult to press down) as well as the ventricular catheter (reservoir does not refill after pressing down).

 

 

CSF-PORT

Weiterlesen

As opposed to the prechamber, the CSF-Port possesses only one connection for the ventricular catheter. The CSF-Port is used in patients who need longterm administration of medication, which is injected into the shunt system.

 

Pediatric Prechamber

Weiterlesen

The pediatric version of the prechamber is similar in construction to the standard prechamber, with a diameter that is slightly smaller (14 mm).

Prechamber for LP-drainage


 

Weiterlesen

A special prechamber is available for lumbar-peritoneal drainage. The inlet connector has a smaller diameter to connect the spinal catheter.
