can't really find any information on how often tunneled hd caths should be changed. anyone have valid info on this?
First lets do some basic background info. If the catheter maintains adequate flow,is not infected, does not have fibrin shealths,is not clotted,kt/v >1.2 urr >65% and if the patient has no viable alternatives for any other vascular access placement,than a removal and replacement of the catheter is not required.I am aware of the HeroAccess however I am talking about the patient that a Hero Graft cannot help.THis is what I believe
the cath should only be changed when there is something wrong with it
