Module16: Modified Seldinger Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Placement
Module 16: Modified Seldinger Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Placement
“This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and Kidney Academy.”
Target Audience The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of physicians and adjunct health care professionals (e.g., nurses, technologists) who treat kidney disease. Medical specialties addressed are relevant to transplant surgeons, radiologists, nephrologists, and vascular surgeons.
Statement of Need/Program Overview End stage renal disease (ESRD), specifically dialysis access, is a complicated condition treated by a variety of medical specialists with varied perspectives and skillsets. Population growth predictions suggest that the burden of providing maintenance dialysis in coming decades will be daunting. Access to reliable and applicable training in ESRD / dialysis access is limited, and significant treatment protocol disparity exists globally among professionals. The specialties performing dialysis access are fragmented into siloed societies with limited opportunity to understand the viewpoints of the other specialties serving the same patient.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Outline the principal features of the Percutaneous Modified Seldinger (PSPD) technique used for placement of Peritoneal Catheter (PD)
- Describe two key features that distinguishes this new approach from traditional Seldinger technique
- List the advantages of PSPD over other PD catheter insertion options
- Explain the use of PSPD in urgent need for dialysis
- Explain the ‘expanded’ indications for dialysis with the MSPD technique
- Discuss the risks of the PSPD technique and how to avoid complications
- Identify patient factors where PSPD is contraindicated
- Describe the value of Ultrasound in percutaneous PD catheter placement (also known as modified Seldinger PD catheter placement technique).
