English term or phrase:butterfly needle
A butterfly needle is inserted through the skin into the dome to "access" the reservoir. Spinal fluid is removed by slowly aspirating with a syringe, and chemotherapy is then administered by injecting into the reservoir and catheter. Most patients have no discomfort when chemotherapy is administered through the Ommaya reservoir, and the procedure can be easily performed within minutes on an outpatient basis.
