  • Descripción del producto
    Medtronic Intrathecal Catheter Spinal Segment Revision Kit, 8598A. Method of Sterilization: Ethylene Oxide. Manufacturer Medtronic, Inc., 710 Medtronic Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55432-5604 USA. The Medtronic Model 8598A Spinal Segment Revision Kit is used when a revision to the spinal segment of a Model 8731 or Model 8731SC catheter is required. The catheter is part of an infusion system that stores and delivers parenteral drugs to the intrathecal space. The implanted infusion system components consist of a Medtronic pump and a Model 8731 or Model 8731SC catheter. The catheter connects to the pump at the catheter port. || To deliver parenteral drugs to the intrathecal space. The needle is used to facilitate the placement of the catheter. The needle is inserted percutaneously into the intrathecal. The needle stylet is then removed to confirm the needle placement through observing backflow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the needle. The needle stylet prevents tissue coring and also minimizes loss of CSF. The spinal segment tip of the catheter is inserted through the needle until the catheter is advanced to the desired location. Once the catheter position is verified through fluoroscopy, the needle is carefully removed and discarded.
