What Is a Palindrome Catheter?

A Palindrome catheter is a particular type of hemodialysis catheter, used to help cleanse the blood. It can be helpful for patients who are suffering from a range of disorders and diseases, including blood problems and kidney failure.

These catheters typically consist of a long central tube, divided into two channels, or lumens. One lumen is arterial, designed to carry blood away from the body, while the other is a venous lumen, transporting blood back into the body from the dialysis machine. 

At the far end, the two lumens separate and have color-coded valves to make it easy for medical practitioners to connect the catheter to a dialysis machine.

Palindrome catheters are available in a range of different types, and some of them have special coatings to offer additional protection against contamination and blood clots.

How Does a Palindrome Catheter Work?

A Palindrome catheter is used during hemodialysis and requires the presence of a dialysis machine. First an area of insertion in the patient’s body will need to be identified and numbed with the aid of anesthetic. The catheter can then be inserted, usually into a major blood vessel, and connected to the machine. Blood will flow out of the body via the arterial lumen and back into the body through the venous lumen.

Palindrome Catheter Features

Symmetric Tip Dialysis Catheter: Palindrome Catheters were designed with a unique symmetric tip and laser-cut side slots to reduce recirculation and the probability of positional occlusion, as well as reduce clot formation by minimizing debris attachment.

Palindrome Heparin Coated Dialysis Catheter: Reduces the probability of clot formation and inhibits fibrin sheath propagation with its non-eluting heparin coating.

Palindrome Silver Antimicrobial Dialysis Catheter: Decreases microbial colonization on the catheter surface with silver ion sleeve.

Palindrome Heparin Coated and Silver Ion Antimicrobial Dialysis Catheter: The Palindrome HIS catheter is the leading dialysis catheter, decreasing probability of clot formation and microbial colonization.

Palindrome Reverse-Tunneled Dialysis Catheter: Achieve a precise tip placement and ideal tunnel trajectory using the retrograde tunnel technique.

Palindrome Catheters Maximum Flow Rates: Palindrome Catheters are a high flow, 14.5 Fr catheters made of durable Carbothane material with a lumen Double-D design. 

Reduced Intervention Rate: Palindrome Catheters decreased re-intervention rates compared to other brands.

Safety and Durability Designed for Patients: Covidien’s dialysis catheter back-end design is the standard of quality for over twenty years.

Palindrome Catheter Sizes

By far the most common size of Palindrome catheters is 14.5 Fr. This is measured according to the standard French scale system, which is used to tell the diameters of many kinds of catheters. 14.5 is the right size for these catheters due to the way in which they work, although slightly smaller or larger sizes may be attainable.

Palindrome Catheter Types

There are several different types of Palindrome catheters. Standard symmetric tip dialysis Palindrome catheters are the most common variety, used in most cases of hemodialysis. There are also Heparin-coated Palindrome catheters which reduce the likelihood of clot formation, as well as silver ion Palindrome catheters which help to minimize bacterial growth on the catheter tube. There are even reverse-tunneled Palindrome catheters which are inserted into the right internal jugular vein.

Palindrome Catheter Uses

Palindrome catheters are used for hemodialysis. This is a procedure in which the blood is taken out of the body and fed into a dialysis machine, which carries out similar functions to the kidneys in terms of cleansing the blood before it is returned to the body. This can be useful in many different cases, such as when patients are suffering from blood disorders, kidney problems or renal failure.

Covidien and Kendall are two of the top suppliers of Palindrome catheters.
