Pajunk’s SPROTTE® spinal needle has set the standard for atraumatic dural puncture since its inception in the 1970s. The Sprotte’s atraumatic puncture and optimal gliding properties minimize possible injuries and prevent foreign bodies and tissue particles from being carried into the subarachnoid space. The atraumatic tip also reduces incidence of Post-Dural Puncture Headache (PDPH)3. Due to its "non-cutting" point geometry, the Sprotte needle does not puncture the skin as freely as a conventional Quincke needle.
Most Sprotte needles come with an introducer which can also be purchased separately. Dyna Medical also carries SprotteSono, an echogenic Sprotte spinal needle.
