Barnett Greene described the use of a 26-gauge spinal needle in obstetrics with a decreased incidence of PDPH. The Greene needle was popular until the introduction of the Whitacre needle. Hart and Whitacre29 used a pencil-point needle to decrease PDPH from 5%-10% to 2% Greene (7) described in 1926 a spinal needle with a point that is round, tapering, and sharp. This was the result of experiments made by him during 1923 (8) and his experience. since then that brought him to the conclusion that postpuncture headache is caused by The Greene needle was sized between 20G and 26G. The point was a rounded, non-cutting bevel of medium length with a matching, bevelled, fitted stylet (Fig. 8). The rounded bevel causes a smaller dural puncture hole with separation rather than cutting of fibres

INTRODUCTION: Smaller gauge atraumatic needles, such as the conical-point Whitacre and Gertie Marx needles, and the pencil-point Sprotte needle are commonly used for spinal anesthesia. However, a spinal needle with the most desirable insertion characteristics and a low occurrence of complications is yet to be identified Each needle has numerically ordered centimeter markings on the outer cannula to provide reference for depth placement. Needles feature an adjustable needle stop which allows the user to restrict forward movement, localizing the needle tip to the biopsy site. Available with an echogenic tip on the outer cannula to promote accurate placement.

One of the first decisions to be made in considering spinal puncture is what kind of needle to use. For spinal needles there are two main categories: those that cut the dura mater and those that spread the dural fibers. The former include the traditional disposable spinal needle, the Quincke-Babcock needle, and the latter category contains the Greene, Whitacre Spinal anesthesia is one of the widely used methods of anesthesia which is done by injection of local anesthetics in the cerebrospinal fluid in the L3-L4 region with spinal needles. Our purpose was to compare several adverse effects of the three mostly used needles for spinal anesthesia; 25, 26 and 27 G

The history of spinal needles: getting to the point

• The 19 gage introducer needle establishes a tract through the pleural membrane . • The biopsy needle, with its pencil-point-tipped stylet, is used through the introducer needle . Disposable Greene Biopsy Needle and Set INTRODUCER NEEDLE GREENE Cook Medical® Aspiration biopsy 1 biopsy needles are used as part of either a tandem needle system or a coaxial system. Long spinal needles (3.599, c. 8.9 cm) are used with a large-bore (11, 12, or 14 gauge) needle for bone biopsy or a smaller needle (18 gauge) for soft tissues (11, 27, 45). Trephine cutting needles have a serrated edge and are most widely associated with bone. Aspiration needles are the most frequently used biopsy needles to obtain samples primarily for cytologic analysis. They are commonly used by both radiologists and clinicians and include the spinal needle and the Chiba needle (Figs. 125-1 and 125-2). These needles are simple smaller-gauge beveled needles that have a noncutting edge

1898.137 This alarmingly high incidence of post-spinal headache was likely attributable to the use of large gauge, medium bevel, cutting spinal needles (needles 5, 6 and 7, Fig. 1). In 1956, with the introduction of 22G and 24G needles, the incidence was estimated to be 11%.132 Today the use of fine gauge pencil-point needles, such a A 26 GAUGE LUMBAR PUNCTURE NEEDLE: ITS VALUE IN THE PROPHYLAXIS OF HEADACHE FOLLOWING SPINAL ANALGESIA FOR VAGINAL DELIVERY.

Spinal needles can be broadly characterised as being atraumatic or traumatic depending on their tip configuration15. Traumatic or ‗conventional' needles are the most commonly used. They feature a bevelled tip, designed to puncture through tissue, with an opening at the Greene, Hingson Ferguson, Lutz, Brace andRovenstine, among others

Later came dibucaine and tetracaine, which had a lower incidence of allergic reactions. The early part of the 20th Century also saw improvements in the design of the spinal needle. Gaston Labat and Herbert Merton Greene are both credited with creating safer needle tips that allowed separation, rather than cutting, of tissues Applies to: Head, Neck, Shoulder, Elbow/Hand/Wrist, Back, Hip, Knee, Foot/Ankle An epidural nerve block is a common treatment for back pain due to spinal stenosis, herniated disc, or sciatica. Corticosteroid medication is injected into the epidural space of the spinal column. A local anesthetic is used to numb the site before a spinal needle is [ extrinsic, such as spinal technique and pharmacology. Controllable features of the spinal technique included needle approach (paramedian or midline), needle angle, needle insertion level, side port orientation (in the case of side-aperture needles), and the patient's position during and after injection of the spinal med-ication There is the Brace needle, a Crawford variant; the Lutz epidural needle (1963), with a pencil-point design for single-shot epidural use; the Scott needle (1985), a Tuohy needle with a Luer lock hub; and the Eldor needle (1993), designed for use with combined spinal epidural anesthesia. Improvements in needles altered practice


  1. A spinal needle of this type was designed several years ago (13) but have only slowly acquired more widespread acceptance.

Robson and Zoila seem blissfully happy now. They live in Northumberland, in his beautiful riverside home, which had to be completely renovated after it was flooded in 2015. He says: The Tyne is. 2. Key developments in the spinal needle were also seen in the early 20th century with the development of atraumatic needles, designed to part dural fibres rather than cut them. The Greene needle (1923) had a smooth, rounded tip and was associated with a PDPH of only 4%[12]. The concept was further improved to produce a needle with a solid. A 25- or 22-gauge spinal needle is generally used for this procedure, with a length ranging from 1 inch to 3 inches depending on patient size. While a hypodermic needle can be used, a spinal needle is usually preferred because it contains a stylet. The stylet helps prevent tissue from clogging the lumen of the needle Greene, B.

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back. The spinal cord's role is to carry signals back and forth between the body and brain.

Its purpose is to send motor commands from the brain to the body and sensory information from the body to the brain, and coordinate reflexes. The spinal cord organizes segmentally with thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves emanating from it The spinal needle should be stabilized by the anesthesiologist after proper placement into the subarachnoid space is confirmed. The newer needles, also called pencil-point needles, include the Greene, Sprotte, and Whitacre needles. These newer needles are thought to decrease the risk of a postdural puncture headache by causing less.
