Burrhole Reservoirs

Versatile in use - closes the burrhole

MIETHKE Burrhole Reservoirs

Our Burrhole Reservoirs are characterized by a variety of special functionalities and possibilities for HC treatment.

All MIETHKE Burrhole Reservoirs are made of titanium and can be positioned in the drill hole of the skullcap. They also offer the possibility to measure the intraventricular pressure, inject medication and perform valve control. The stable titanium base prevents possible piercing of the base. Magnetic resonance examinations or computer tomographic examinations can be carried out without impairment. The reservoirs are MRI-conditional.

The Burrhole Reservoir offers the possibility to measure intraventricular pressure, inject medication and the control of the valve. The stable titanium housing prevents possible puncture of the base. A borehole with a diameter of 10 mm is recommended for this borehole reservoir.

       

 

Burrhole Port

Weiterlesen

Unlike the Burrhole Reservoir, the Burrhole Port does not possess an outlet to connect to the distal catheter. It is used for example in patients for who require puncture for extraction of CSF or injection of medication.

 

SPRUNG RESERVOIR

 

Weiterlesen

Due to its non-return valve in the base, the SPRUNG RESERVOIR enables to pump the CSF only in the draining direction. This makes it possible to control blockages of both, the distal catheter (in which case the reservoir is difficult to squeeze out) and the ventricular catheter (in which case the reservoir is difficult to fill after squeezing out). When the silicone dome is pressed, the access is closed by a non-return valve.

 

 

PEDIATRIC BURRHOLE RESERVOIR

Unlike that used in standard applications, the Burrhole Reservoir for pediatric application has no offset at the bottom of the reservoir. In addition the dimensions of the housing are smaller.

ETOU RESERVOIR


 

Weiterlesen

The ETOU RESERVOIR is used if the ventricular catheter has to be placed on the Burrhole Reservoir at an acute angle. The connector on the bottom of the ETOU RESERVOIR can be rotated according to the patient's requirements.

 

McLANAHAN RESERVOIR

Weiterlesen

The McLANAHAN RESERVOIR functions similar to the SPRUNG RESERVOIR: By pressing down the membrane CSF-flow is produced in distal direction. In addition to the above function, it is possible to inject specific drugs or fluids into either the ventricles or in a distal direction into the shunt system. To inject into the ventricles: A cannula is used to puncture the reservoir. The cannula is then used to depress the floor of the reservoir. By depressing the floor of the reservoir completely, the distal outlet is closed and the proximal outlet is opened, thus allowing drainage into the ventricles. When a cannula is used without depressing the reservoir floor, the proximal outlet is blocked and the distal outlet is opened. During the transition between the above mentioned conditions, both outlets are open.
