A set of new suitable microsurgical suction tubes has been designed especially suitable for fragile and delicate tissues such as the nervous and vascular tissues in the brain and spinal cord. The set provides two different shafts and five different tubes for superficial of deep micro- as well as macro-operations.
These new suction tubes have two major advantages compared to traditional suction tubes. Firstly: the perforated smooth suctiontip allows continuous suction without damage to the tissue and secondly: the tubes are quickly and easily exchanged from the suction shaft when necessary.
