Hemodialysis catheter reduces risk of bloodstream infections

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Catheter-related bloodstream infections are the bane of tunneled dialysis catheters, despite the widespread use of antimicrobial dressings or an injection cap placed on the exit site of the catheter to help protect the inside of the catheter from becoming colonized. The NexSite Hemodialysis Catheter from Marvao Medical Devices Ltd. is designed to reduce these bloodstream infections with a protective biomaterial tissue ingrowth scaffold that is part of the catheter and positioned at the skin exit site.
