Titanium Connectors

Versatile connecting elements between valves and catheters

Titanium Connectors

Connectors are special and quite versatile connecting elements in the shunt system that can connect valves and catheters in different ways.

The MIETHKE Titanium Connectors are constructed of titanium and have an external diameter of 1.9 mm.

Titanium Connectors, straight

The straight MIETHKE connector is most frequently used in the therapy of HC with a shunt system.

The classic MIETHKE Titanium Connectors should preferably be used in combination with catheters with an inner diameter of 1.2  and an external diameter of 2.5 mm.

Titanium Connectors Variations

In addition to the classic, straight MIETHKE connector, there are special versions for special applications.

These variants should preferably be used in conjunction with catheters with an inner diameter of 1.2  and an external diameter of 2.5 mm.

Titanium Connectors, step-down

This special connector serves as a connection for LP drainage.

The MIETHKE Titanium Connector, step-down has an external diameter of 1.4 mm on the inlet side and is particularly suitable for use in  spinal shunting - this means when a peritoneal catheter has to be connected to a smaller spinal catheter (inner diameter 0.8 mm, outer diameter 1.6 mm).
