Palindrome™ Precision HSI–Heparin Coated & Silver Ion Antimicrobial Dialysis Catheter
The Palindrome™ Precision HSI chronic catheter with heparin coating and silver ion subcutaneous sleeve is intended for acute and chronic hemodialysis, apheresis, and infusion. It may be inserted either percutaneously or by cutdown.
The device is contraindicated in thrombosed vessels or for subclavian puncture when ventilator is in use. This product should not be used in patients with documented hypersensitivity to silver, heparin or porcine based products. Heparin coated catheters should not be used in patients with severe thrombocytopenia, uncontrollable active bleeding disorders, or with skin necrosis from previous heparin use. In case of infection, the silver in the catheter does not replace the need for using systemic anti-infective agents. Clinicians/healthcare professionals should be aware that there are very limited data on prolonged and repeated use of silver containing products and particularly in children and neonates.
See the device manual for detailed information regarding the implant procedure, indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and potential complications/adverse events.
