The pressure/flow performance of the Novus Valves is specifically designed to resemble the characteristics of normal, healthy, CSF physiology. Novus features an integral Anti-Siphon Device based on a normally-open design.
The original Ball-In-Cone and Spring mechanism is the basis of all our Natus DP Valve Systems. Several color-coded pressure ranges are offered in standard and pediatric versions. A variety of system configurations are available, depending on physician preference.
The simple cylindrical shape of the UltraVS lowers the profile of the valve system in order to reduce the risk of skin erosion. At only 13 mm long and 3.8 mm wide, the UltraVS Neonate is the smallest valve manufactured, and the Natus valve most appropriate for neonatal patients.
The Multi-Purpose Valves are easy-to-use flat bottom miter valve devices and are available in three pressure ranges, with or without an integral Anti-Siphon Device to meet a wide range of patient needs.
Each Horizontal-Vertical (H-V) lumbar valve system adjusts for changes in posture to maintain pressure at appropriate levels in the standing and recumbent positions. When the valve unit is horizontal, the spring-actuated, ball-in-cone inlet valve alone controls the lower pressure limit.
Spetzler is the most prominent name in lumbar-peritoneal shunting products, available exclusively from Natus. The original lumbar-peritoneal shunt, designed for the treatment of communicating hydrocephalus in adults, can be inserted without a laminectomy.
The Gravity Compensating Accessory (GCA) is designed to be mounted in line with the DP valve or any other differential pressure valve system in order to counteract the siphoning effect of hydrostatic pressure when the patient is in the upright position.
On-Off CSF Reservoirs feature the exclusive On-Off Device, a proximal occluder, and reinforced flat bottom. The reservoir is offered with or without an Anti-Siphon Device.
