Superior design and continued enhancements to the Gertie Marx needle continue to improve procedural outcomes by dramatically reducing the risk of PDPH. The results are simple; improved outcomes and increased patient comfort and satisfaction.

The Gertie Marx needle was introduced with a non-atraumatic design that was designed to separate rather than punch holes in dural fibers. The atraumatic tip creates a distinctive pop when the dura is punctured inspiring confidence and higher success rates in teaching environments.

Extensive research and studies confirm the a dramatic reduction in the occurrence of post dural puncture headaches.. At the time of the needle’s introduction 30 years ago, Post Dural Puncture Headaches occurence rates were ~30% Using the Gertie Marx Needle, PDPH occurrence rates can be reduced to less than 1% with proper application and technique.
