The THOMALE GUIDE is a neurosurgical instrument that is designed for the precise insertion of a ventricular catheter via a frontal pre-coronal burrhole
Together with the THOMALE GUIDE App for the iPhone and iPad, we provide a precise navigation instrument that prevents an incorrect catheter placement. By inserting a CT or MRI to the THOMALE GUIDE App the insertion angle, length of the catheter and distance to the midline can be calculated with a few steps.
The design is based on the principle that in the sagittal plane, a right angle to the surface (tangent) always reaches the ventricles correctly, whereas in the coronal plane, an individual angle has to be adjusted in order to allow correct Placement.
- correct placement of the ventricular catheter
- easy and quick calculation of the insertion angle, length of the catheter and distance to the midline through the THOMALE GUIDE App
- resterilizable instrument
