Havel's Inc. Improves Needle With New 4x4 Reflector Pattern
Date:4/12/2011

CINCINNATI, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Havel's market leading EchoStim® Echogenic Insulated needle has been improved.  The EchoStim® allows practitioners to perform Peripheral Nerve Blocks (PNBs) using nerve stimulation and ultrasound guidance at the same time.  The new improved needle has more, brighter, easier to see reflectors, which make using ultrasound easier, giving even inexperienced practitioners the benefits of using both nerve block techniques together.

According to Havel's, the original EchoStim® had 3 rows of 3 Corner Cube Reflectors (CCR®) near the tip of the needle.  Depending on how one held the needle, there were times the reflectors were not facing the transducer.  This required rotation of the needle to bring the reflectors in to view.  The new 4 rows of 4 pattern make this much less likely as there is less space between rows.  John Barrett, Havel's Vice President of Sales and Marketing said, "Our customers were very pleased with the original EchoStim®, making it the market leader in a very short period of time.  We were however still finding occasional Doctors and CRNAs that were not able to see the reflectors, and were not aware of the need for needle rotation.  This change should reduce or eliminate that issue."

According to Havel's, the extra row and the 4th reflector in each row will also make the dots more noticeable, giving the EchoStim® 16 reflectors in the needle's first 5.5 mm.  The manufacturing process has also been improved making each CCR® brighter under ultrasound.  Havel's is the exclusive distributor of Hakko® Medical, Japan, a manufacturer of innovative spinal and procedure needles.
