The Yueh needle is a very commonly used piece of equipment during radiology procedures. There are a few different types of Yueh needles, and this page will cover the curved version of this needle. It is important to keep in mind that the curved Yueh needle does not have a needle that is curved, but rather a catheter that will coil as it is fed off of the needle (the curved catheter can be seen in the image below). The needle covered on this page is the Yueh Centesis Disposable Catheter Needle that is sold by Cook Medical (REF G10474).
