The Gertie Marx® needle. Improved outcomes at your fingertips.

For more than 30 years, IMD has worked hand in hand with doctors across the globe continually improving our needle design. Studies confirm the Gertie Marx atraumatic needle has a very low <1% occurrence of PDPH when administered with proper technique. IMD offers the most comprehensive range of needles available today ensuring physicians have access to the right needle for every patient.

We offer spinal needles from 22G to 276 with lengths raning from 50mm to 215mm.

The evidence that atraumatic spinal needles cause fewer PDPHs is so convincing that both the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the American Academy of Neurology have published statements encouraging the replacement of cutting needles with atraumatic spinal needles. link to research studies
