This catheter differs from the current intrathecal catheters used with medtronic implantable pumps by the following modifications: 1) multi-layered catheter body that resists cuts, fractures, and occlusions; 2) bi-wing anchor with new anchor dispenser designed to prevent catheter dislodgment; 3) catheter connector that prevents puncture of the catheter body; and 4) modified sutureless pump connector design to prevent occlusion.
