  • Patent number: 4553960
    Abstract: The cannula of a conventional intravascular catheter is placed into the peritoneal cavity through a small shallow incision in antiseptically prepared skin. The stylet or trocar of the conventional catheter is removed; and a stainless steel elongated flexible guide is inserted through the catheter's cannula into the peritoneal cavity. The catheter's cannula is removed and a flexible elongated cannula inserted into the cavity over the guide and secured in place with a suture. Fluid operation means is connected to the elongated cannula by connector means to permit fluid treatment after removal of the guide. Apparatus to effect peritoneal fluid treatment are placed in sterile openable sealed packages for storage and transport.

  • Patent number: 4391276
    Abstract: A safer peritoneal catheter with improved non-plugging characteristics is disclosed. The catheter has very fine sidewall openings which generally have projections associated therewith which tend to prevent the openings from becoming clogged with tissue. The catheter and side holes are sized to facilitate removal of blood and liquids from the peritoneal cavity. The very fine sidewall openings enhance the reliability of the catheter while permitting it to have excellent strength and resistance to breakage.
