adult hydrocephalus shunt valve
MIETHKE DUALSWITCH® Valve
Special valve design for patients with increased level of tumor cells, debris or blood cells
A high protein level or tumor cells in the CSF can lead to valve blockage. These issues were given particular consideration in the development of the MIETHKE DUALSWITCH® Valve. The special design of the valve presents a very large surface area to the CSF, thus ensuring reliable operation even in contaminated fluid.
Clinical studies also demonstrate successful treatment of patients with so-called normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH).
The MIETHKE DUALSWITCH® Valve is made from titanium, a material that guarantees outstanding precision, reliability and biocompatibility.
- Automatic switch of opening pressure
- Large surface area to CSF
- Reliable even with contaminated fluid
The MIETHKE DUALSWITCH® Valve is available as a single valve or as a shunt system with different components.
