Surgical Aspects of PD Catheter Placement

Proper placement of the peritoneal dialysis catheter is crucial to the success of PD. We rely on the surgical skill of our physician colleagues to ensure the best outcomes when it comes to their dialysis lifeline -- the PD catheter. During this session, we hear from vascular surgeon Dr. Lin who has cared for and operated upon many patients requiring PD catheter placement. Intended for educational purposes only.
