A spinal needle is a specialized medical needle designed for specific procedures involving the spinal cord and surrounding structures. It's commonly used in spinal anesthesia, spinal taps (lumbar punctures), and certain diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
A spinal needle is designed to penetrate the subarachnoid space for immediate anaesthesia, While an epidural needle is used to access the epidural space for longer-term pain relief via catheter insertion.
Quincke needles have a cutting bevel, while Whitacre needles have a pencil-point tip, reducing the risk of post-dural puncture headache.
There are six types of spinal needle are Quincke (or Cutting) Tip, Pencil Point Tip (Whitacre), Acutip Tip, Gertie Marx Tip, Atraumatic or Non-Cutting Tips, Sprotte Tip
Spinal needles are typically designed for single-use, being disposable after one procedure. Reusing them poses risks of contamination and compromise of their sharpness and sterility.
Selecting the appropriate size of a spinal needle involves considering factors like the patient's anatomy, the procedure's purpose, and the clinician's expertise. Factors to consider are Gauge (Thickness), Length and Procedure Type.
