Introducing IRRAflow®

A fundamental redesign of fluid management technology developed by leading neurosurgeons, the IRRAflow system demonstrates a significant technological step forward compared to other currently available treatment options. IRRAflow’s transformational technology provides a controlled fluid exchange system that allows the neurosurgeon to actively manage intracranial pressure and CSF drainage.

IRRAflow System

IRRAflow consists of a control unit and disposables (dual-lumen catheter and tube set) to offer four fully integrated and synchronized functions:

A fluid exchange system with an irrigating pump and drainage mechanism that interact with a dual lumen catheter to both supply and evacuate fluid from the body. The system is also synchronized to monitor local body cavity pressure within a preprogrammed range.
A monitoring and measuring system for intracranial pressure based on a method that uses a fluid column for accuracy and reliability.
A safety alarm that can be customized for each patient and is activated when the pressure is higher or lower than the preprogrammed range.
The programmable periodic flush irrigation enables fluid exchange to occur..

Dual-Lumen Catheter

With its use of a patented dual-lumen catheter design, IRRAflow allows the user to transition from passive drainage to a therapeutic treatment with active fluid management. Utilizing this dual-lumen design enables periodic flushing of the catheter tip.
