All connectors manufactured by MIETHKE are constructed of titanium and have an internal diameter of 0.9 mm and the external diameter of 1.9 mm.
The classic MIETHKE titanium connectors should preferably be used in combination with catheters with an inner diameter of 1.2 to 1.5 mm. The outer diameter of the catheters should be approximately twice the inner diameter.
These variants should preferably be used in conjunction with catheters with an inner diameter of 1.2 to 1.5 mm. The outer diameter of the catheters should be approximately twice the inner diameter.
The MIETHKE titanium connector, step-down is particularly suitable for use in spinal drainage - i.e. when a peritoneal catheter has to be connected to a thinner spinal catheter.
