EpiSpin Lock

Unique CSE Needle System with Locking Mechanism, Back-eye Tuohy and SPROTTE® needle

With EpiSpin Lock, Pajunk combines two techniques into one product: atraumatic spinal anesthesia using the Sprotte needle, and continuous epidural catheter placement using the Tuohy needle. The EpiSpin Lock offers smooth spinal puncture while minimizing needle tip damage through the back-eye opening on the distal end of the Tuohy needle. With the integrated locking mechanism, the Sprotte needle is stabilized for the injection of anesthetic while reducing the risk of a needle displacement.
