    At UChicago-Comer Children’s we use Sprotte needles with an introducer (please see attached pictures) for patients who have had spinal headaches with a quincke needle.  Otherwise, we use a quincke needle.


    Let me know if you have any additional questions!

    Does anybody use the pencil point needles when performing spinal taps?  If you do can you post the brand and order number or reference number
