All of Epimed’s spring-reinforced epidural catheters are constructed of surgical-grade stainless steel spring. The uncoated tips are flexible, smooth, and rounded. Distal coils are slightly spread for maximum flexibility and lateral distribution of injectate. Our catheters have enhanced tensile strength and resist longitudinal breakage. Inherent memory in the spring coils reduces kinking and collapsing. In addition, these catheters are radiopaque and include the Racz® Bend Marks* to better highlight key navigational reference marks.
