Indications

Accudrain™ (Product codes INS8400 and INS8401): Draining and monitoring of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) flow from the ventricles of the brain or lumbar subarachnoid space is indicated in selected patients to:

  • Reduce Intracranial Pressure (ICP).
  • Monitor Intracranial Pressure (ICP).
  • Monitor Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF).
  • Provide temporary CSF drainage.

Indications for Ventricular and Lumbar Catheters (product codes INS8220, INS4000, INS4500, INS8420, INS5010, INS8330):

  • External ventricular drainage catheters are indicated for drainage and monitoring of CSF from the lateral ventricles of the brain. The catheters may be used to reduce intracranial pressure (ICP), to monitor ICP, to monitor CSF and in the management of hydrocephalic shunt infections.
  • External lumbar drainage catheters are indicated for drainage and monitoring of CSF from the lumbar subarachnoid space.

Contraindications

Accudrain™ (Product codes INS8400 and INS8401): This device is not designed, sold, or intended for use except as indicated. The External Drainage System is contraindicated in the following: Anticoagulation therapy, Coagulation disorders, Untreated scalp infections. System use is contraindicated where trained personnel are not available to supervise drainage and monitoring on a 24-hour a day basis.

These devices are not designed, sold or intended for use except as indicated.

  • Lumbar drainage and/or lumbar pressure monitoring should not be used in the presence of: non-communicating hydrocephalus; a large intracranial mass, tumor or hematoma; or in patients who have demonstrated a blockage of cerebrospinal fluid path ways due to trauma, tumor, hematoma or other large intracranial mass.
  • Lumbar catheters are contraindicated in cases of spinal abnormalities that would prevent free insertion of the lumbar catheter.
  • Lumbar catheters are contraindicated in infants where the lower end of the spinal cord has not yet migrated to its cephalad L1-2 position. In view of the marked narrowing of the lumbosacral canal in achondroplastic patients, a lumbar catheter in the subarachnoid space is contraindicated.
