Havel's Incorporated Helping to Reduce Radiation Exposure with New EchoTuohy™ Ultrasound Needle
Date:9/7/2010

CINCINNATI, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Havel's Incorporated, the Cincinnati-based market leader in echogenic needles, has announced the release of a new echogenic ultrasound needle which could help reduce radiation exposure.  Last month, Havel's Incorporated released four new echogenic needles using their new, innovative Micro Laser Etching (MLE™) technology, which creates multiple angled surfaces to reflect sound waves back to the transducer even at steep insertion angles.

The new needle, the Echogenic EchoTuohy™ Epidural Needle, will be used for ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks, epidural catheter placement, and epidural steroid injections.  As ultrasound image quality continues to improve, many practitioners are looking for ways to avoid radiation exposure for themselves and their patients.  Those switching to ultrasound guidance for epidural steroid injections will be happy to see the reflection from Havel's MLE™ echogenic feature as they guide their injection to its target.  The portability of ultrasound units, the expense of big fluoroscopy equipment, and the growth of pain management are all reasons why people are turning to ultrasound guided procedures and to Havel's new echogenic needles.

Havel's does something similar with their EchoStim® and EchoBlock® products using their patented Corner Cube Reflectors, or CCR® marks, which indent the needle slightly making it impossible to pass wires or catheters through the cannula.  Now with the MLE™ technology users are free to pass wires or catheters through the cannula without obstruction.  John Barrett, the Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Havel's Inc said, "Once we had the technology to make needles echogenic without affecting the inner diameter, I knew a Tuohy Epidural Needle was our next logical addition to the line."
