Diagnostic lumbar puncture with SPROTTE® cannulas

The Lumbar puncture is an indispensable instrument for diagnostics and therapy control of inflammatory and oncological diseases of the central nervous system. The PAJUNK® atraumatic SPROTTE® cannula sets standards for the security of the invasive intervention.

Characteristics of the SPROTTE® cannula

Ogive-shaped tip geometry displaces tissue during puncture, causing minimal injury.2
When the cannula has been withdrawn, the multi-layered dura, consisting of collagens and elastic fibres, closes again.
