The MIETHKE SENSOR RESERVOIR / SENSOR PRECHAMBER is the first long-term implantable measuring cell for the measurement of pressures within a shunt system.
It is integrated into a reservoir for a ventricular drainage system and transmits pressure values using telemetric methods, thus non-invasively, via a reader unit.
- The SENSOR RESERVOIR / SENSOR PRECHAMBER allows, for the first time, the pressure in a shunt system to be measured and evaluated, and integrated into treatment options.
- The reservoir Membrane permits:
- Injection of medication
- Fluid removal
- Valve inspections
