    Buena noche
    1.- Es de utilidad realizar puncion con aguja para llenar la cavidad y posteriormente reintroducir la guia metalica? Creo que es una tecnica con mucho riesgo.
    2.- Utilizan cateter recto? tecnicamente es mejor el cateter espiral.
    3.- No tiene linea de tranferencia y al parecer utilizan venoclisis para realizar la dialisis peritoneal.Hay mucho riesgo de peritonitis.

    This is an excellent technique which also have the following advantages:
    1) Catheter can be removed easily under local anaesthetic without the need for a theatre and diathermy (no cuffs within muscle).
    2) The catheter can be removed and replaced through the same incision.
    3) You can use curly (pig-tailed) catheters and swan neck catheters
    4) You can use immediately for acute PD (sometimes worth just putting in extra sutures around the incision site if you intend to do this).
    5) Can be performed by surgeons, physicians, radiologists and nurses.
    6)It is easy to teach.
    7)Can be modified for Moncrief Popovitch technique
    8) No general anaesthesia
    We have saved countless in-patient bed days, money and surgical list spaces using this technique. Patients often prefer the day case surgery and rapid access and lack of discomfort to a general anaesthetic procedure.
    My other comments are;
    1) The patient should have a check ultrasound to ensure the bladder is empty before the procedure.
    2) This was a particularly thin patient. Sometimes you need a much longer needle if the patient is bigger.
    3) Mainly catheters go in the correct place, but if you absolutetly have to know that the catheter is positioned correctly do it with x-ray screening. BUT even if they do initially go in the correct space, they can migrate no matter which technique you use.

Only trained man power only should install and use Pigtail Catheter in order to avoid injuries in the track. A range of Polymers are used for the construction of Pigtail Catheters including silicone rubber, latex, and thermoplastic elastomers. The most common material for manufacturing Pigtail Catheter is silicone because it is inert and un reactive to body fluids and a range of medical fluids with which it might come into contact.

    The tunneler is too thin and could be a mismatch while pulling out the catheter due to wider size of catheter.

    A very simple technique but availability of guide wire, the dilator? with the outer sheath( broken) are not available in all countries.
    What different sizes for pediatric age groups are available.
    can you list the disposables and their make?
    can we use alternatives?
    can we use the rigid PD catheters with stylet after removal of stylet we can follow the same steps.
