A LEADER IN PATIENT CARE Performance. Confidence. Our Palindrome™ Precision family of chronic hemodialysis catheters features unique design, innovative coatings, precision tip technology — and a legacy you can count on. Internal testing supports the following features unique to the Palindrome family of catheters: Palindrome™ Precision symmetric tip dialysis catheter The symmetric tip with marker band technology and laser-cut side slots increases tip visualization — reducing recirculation. It incorporates a design that promotes adequate flow over the duration of use.1–3 Palindrome™ Precision...

Palindrome™ Precision Symmetric Tip Dialysis Catheter Maximum Flow Rates The Palindrome™ Precision dialysis catheter — with its internal lumen design, 14.5Fr diameter, and durable Carbothane™* material — is able to consistently deliver high flow rates.6 High tensile strength material and internal lumen design optimize inner diameter integrity without compromising flexibility or kink resistance. Dependable Patency The unique symmetric tip design and laser-cut side slots promote catheter patency7: ∙ Laser-cut side slot surfaces are smooth which helps discourage platelet adhesion and minimize...

Tal VenaTrac™ Insertion Stylets Over-the-wire insertion stylets allow for an over-the-wire insertion technique. This creates a staggered tip effect for easier9 left-sided or subclavian catheter placements and eliminates the need to use a pull-apart sheath. In a retrospective review of catheter insertions and sheath insertion comparison, this unique design: ∙ Reduces blood loss ∙ Promotes over-the-wire catheter exchanges ∙ Allows for sheathless initial catheter insertions Reduced Intervention Rate In a case-controlled study, the Palindrome™ SI–silver ion antimicrobial dialysis catheter had...

Palindrome™ Precision dialysis catheter Shear Intensity TECHNOLOGY IN PRACTICE 1. Radiopaque tungsten marker Radiopaque tungsten marker band allows the inserter to easily locate the functional tip of the catheter and visualize the placement of the tip in the right atrium on fluoroscopy and X-ray.3 2. Enhanced laser-cut side slots In a computational model, the laser-cut side slots reduce total shear stress on the inflow side slot, an additional benefit to the laser-cut side slots of the Palindrome™ family of catheters.3 3. Optimized tip geometry Optimized tip geometry helps reduce insertion...

H–Heparin Coating H-HEPARIN COATING TECHNOLOGY IN PRACTICE 1. Decreases likelihood of platelet adhesion In vivo testing demonstrated an 82 percent reduction in thrombus accumulation versus non-coated catheters. In vitro testing showed a 60 percent reduction in platelet adhesion on the surface when compared with noncoated catheters.4,5 2. Inhibits fibrin sheath propagation Supported by in vivo data, the noneluting heparin coating has been shown to inhibit fibrin sheath propagation when compared with noncoated catheters.4 3. Demonstrates long-lasting effectiveness Tested in a shear flow...
