micro Steer patented

with needle plate

Combined epidural-transforaminal monopolar lead equipped with a pulsed radio frequency (PRF) Current Flow Optimization (OFC) system through the vertebral foramen. The use of Micro Steer, thanks to its very small size and the special manoeuvring system of the active tip, allows rapid and precise access to the dorsal root ganglion of the posterior spinal nerve root to perform a reversible neurotomy.


micro Steer is a pulsed radio frequency adjustable epidural and transganglionic lead to treat multilevel spinal radiculopathies (cervical tract, dorsal tract, lumbosacral tract), type:
  • lumbalgia
  • sciatica of spinal nerve roots L4-L5-S1
  • cervicobrachialgia
  • postherpetic neuralgia (disorder)
  • root and FBSS injuries



Equipped with a switch to activate or exclude the distal thermosensor for continuous temperature monitoring. Micro Steer is supplied with an introductory kit and universal RF generator connector cable.

Steerable distal electrode for perfect maneuverability within the epidural space. The steerable distal active tip allows the "target" to be reached with greater precision, atraumaticity and greatly reducing the surgery times.

Cutting-edge microtechnology. Thanks to the technical-construction solutions adopted and its small size (only 1.10 mm), micro Steer can be used for pulsed RF treatments in absolute safety for the operator and patient, achieving a high operational success rate.

Micro Steer is a valid alternative in the management of chronic pain, guaranteeing:
  • speed and therapeutic success;
  • repeatability of treatment;
  • minimum invasiveness;
  • possibility of direct infusion of drugs.

The micro Steer lead Needle Plate used correctly, performs the following functions:
  • It allows a concentrated current flow in the area to be treated (ganglia),
  • It reduces the voltage and the treatment time in PRF, with lower risk of nerve tissue damage,
  • It increases the energy density of electric field,
  • It minimizes the effects of impedance,
  • It also allows the administration of anaesthetic/drugs by infusion.

Characteristics

The needle plate consists of a tube introducer containing a needle electrode whose tip protrudes 25 mm, while the rest of the electric needle remains inside the tube introducer which acts as an insulator throughout its length, excluding the exposed end part. Two tubes split from the distal part of the plate, one for a syringe connector and one for a female electrical cable connector.

Measurements

  • Introducer spindle diameter 1.50x115 mm
  • Tube introducer diameter 2.00x160x500 mm
