Description

MIETHKE GAV® 2.0
Gravitational valve for the treatment of hydrocephalus
The GAV® 2.0 is the consequent further development of the proven GAV® and paediGAV® and like its predecessors a gravitational valve consisting of a differential pressure and gravitational unit.
The combination of a differential pressure unit and gravitational unit ensures an automatic opening pressure adjustment as a function of
the position of the patient's body and in that way counteracts complications due to excess drainage.
Advantages
- Gravitational technology: prevents over- and underdrainage complications and meets the physiological needs of the patients.
- The slender cylindrical design allows for quick and easy implantation in adults and in the treatment of pediatric hydrocephalus.
- Two additional variants for lumbar CSF drainage.
Features
- Length valve housing: 13.4 mm
- Outer diameter: 4.2 mm
- Material: Titanium
Note
Because the opening pressure of the valve depends on the position of the patient, GAV® 2.0 must be implanted parallel to the body axis.
Depending on the height and other properties of the patient, 6 pressure setting are offered, which should be chosen accordingly (see brochure / pressure recommendation).
Indication
Treatment of Hydrocephalus
