Permacath placement

A permacath is an external catheter that can provide access to the vascular system for a year or it can be used as a point of permanent access.

Permacaths allow for a patient who needs kidney dialysis to avoid multiple catheter insertions.

Permacaths can also be used to administer caustic medication such as chemotherapy that causes injury to veins.
