Catheters for peritoneal dialysis


The peritoneal catheters allows for access to the peritoneal cavity.

It is widely agreed that the key to successful PD is a good, permanent and safe access to the peritoneum cavity. Up to 20% of transfers from PD to haemodialysis are directly related to catheter problems (Gokal et al., 1993).


Fresenius Medical Care developed a line of peritoneal catheters for children and adults and are made of silicone.

There are different types of catheters for chronic use:

  • Tenckhoff catheter,
  • Oreopoulos-Zellermann catheter,
  • Swan-neck catheter.
