    Default Presternal PD Catheters

    I have a PD candidate that is interested in a Presternal PD catheter. I know little about them. If anyone has experience with them, I would appreciate a list of Pros/Cons.

    Thank You,

    Hi Holly,

    Not sure how I didn't see this post. I assume you've seen our article about presternal catheters here? http://www.homedialysis.org/index.ph...al_pd_catheter. These are not available in all parts of the U.S., so they may or not be an option in your area.

    Here is a page about the presternal catheter with links to reimbursement, ordering information, FAQs, features and benefits, and how the catheters are supplied.
