Surgical Instruments

Stieglitz-Suction and Irrigation Device

Irrigation and suction accompany a microsurgical operation from beginning to end.

Irrigation is mostly performed by an additional member of staff. However, this approach requires additional personnel and more importantly the second instrument interferes with the surgeons view.

Moreover this practice requires constant instructions to be given by the surgeon, which has the disadvantage of being not only time consuming but also has an effect on concentration and precision.

Spiegelberg: Stieglitz-Suction and Irrigation Device

The Stieglitz-Suction and Irrigation Device combines both features in a unique way - in a single small and disposable microsurgical instrument. The special ergonomic design provides intuitive and secure handling. The ergonomic design of the Stieglitz-Irrigation and Suction Device is suitable for a variety of grip positions. It is attached by two flexible tubes to a pressure infusion pump and a vacuum suction device.
