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? 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.
