The pencil point spinal needle has an essential advantage over the quincke point spinal needle. It is safer for the patient and user because this needle has a lateral hole through which the anesthetic is delivered into the spinal space. The needle is therefore to be preferred by beginners and / or inexperienced doctors.


  • Spinal needles are used for lumbar puncture for spinal anaesthesia
  • Conical needle tip with no sharp edges enables atraumatic puncture of the dura and minimises the risk of post-spinal headache
  • Lateral outlet opening offers targeted anaesthetic introduction (45° angle)
  • Special needle design with lateral opening and fitted mandrel precludes the biopsy effect during puncture
  • Spinal needle manufactured from high-quality steel, with a thin-walled cannula; the smooth needle surface enables easy and atraumatic puncture
  • Needle hub is designed for ease of manipulation
  • Mandrel grip is colour-coded according to needle size
  • Transparent needle hub with magnifying effect enables quick detection of cerebrospinal fluid backflow and precise positioning of the needle tip
  • Range includes spinal needles with short guide needle for puncturing dense tissue and for insertion of the spinal needle in the required direction
