A special manufacturing technology has been used for the cylindrical drainage holes at the tip of the catheter to reduce the possibility of blockage during drainage. In addition, the Spiegelberg Silverline® shunt catheters have a special silver additive that reduces the possibility of microbial colonisation of the product surface.
Spiegelberg Silverline® ventricular shunt catheters are made of silver impregnated radiopaque implant-quality silicone. Silverline® ventricular shunt catheters also have depth markers. A stylet and a trocar are included with the catheter.
Spiegelberg Silverline® peritoneal shunt catheters consist of two layers: the inner layer contains a radiopaque silicone and the outer layer of the Silverline® peritoneal shunt catheter is pure implant-quality silicone.
