  • The Palindrome HSI–Heparin Coated and Silver Ion Antimicrobial Dialysis Catheter is a chronic catheter meant to provide dual protection against clotting and microbial colonization
  • It features an outer diameter of 14.5 Fr
  • It provides consistent flow rates of 450mL/min, exceeding K-DOQI guideline recommendations for access flow rates while minimizing the size of the catheter insertion site
  • The internal lumen design provides equal, consistent flow rates with low arterial and venous pressures
  • The Silver ion sleeve is up to 99.999% effective against a broad spectrum of recent clinical isolates
  • It minimizes microbial colonization on the catheter surface
  • The heparin coating has a triple-action formula:
    - Heparin—anti-thrombogenic
    - Negative charge—non-thrombogenic
    - Hydrophilicity—non-thrombogenic
  • These formulas are proven to reduce the likelihood of clot formation on the catheter’s surface and inhibit fibrin sheath propagation
  • Its high tensile strength Carbothane material optimizes the inner diameter integrity, allowing for kink resistance, flexibility for placement and high flow rates
  • It also allows for quick visualization during diagnostic imaging
  • It is designed with a unique symmetric tip which allows continuous flow between dialysis treatments and reduces the likelihood of re-intervention
  • The laser-cut surfaces are smooth and decrease the likelihood of positional occlusion and clot formation by minimizing debris attachment
  • The side slots allow for flow through the catheter slot surface between dialysis treatments, which assists in keeping the tip patent
  • The clear silicone extensions with thermoset memory which resist kinking and crimping with repeated clamping and use, reducing blood flow inhibition
  • They come in a standard packing of 5 units per box

Customer reviews

Finally a long-lasting catheter whose efficiency cannot be doubted upon. Took me a long time to find this catheter online - appreciate the help from SMB folks with a discount for bulk booking.
