ANTIMICROBIAL CATHETER FOR TEMPORARY VENTRICULAR DRAINAGE
Delta are pleased to be able to offer and support The VentriGuard ventricular catheter which meets all neurosurgical requirements for temporary CSF drainage while also optimising protection against infection caused by micro-organisms.
As a solution in order to control pathegens, the VentriGuard technology utilises minimal amounts of ionized silver, which are completely incorporated in a non-metallic porous molecular structure. The antimicrobial effect of silver against gram-positive as well as gram-negative bacteria has been impressively verified in specialist literature.
The catheter also offers further application benefits for the surgeon, due to the length markings in intervals of 1 cm and mandrin that reaches all the way to the tip of the catheter. This enables precise catheter placement in a simple way.
Possible catheter dislocation ist prevented by the catheter connector which is fixed directly onto the scalp
