Arrow Edge® Antegrade-Tunneled Chronic Hemodialysis Catheter

Staggered V-Tip Design for Optimal Performance

The Arrow Edge® Catheter is designed to provide optimal performance by delivering high flow rates, up to 400 cc per minute, at low pressures.1 The crescent-shape of the catheter 's distal V- tip is designed to promote blood flow even if the tip is resting against the vessel wall.

  • Innovative V-tip design and catheter tip orientation minimize the risk of recirculation when placed in the right atrium2
  • Compatible with broad spectrum of antiseptic agents, including alcohol and iodine3
  • Kits feature Arrow® SmartSeal® Hemostatic Peelable Dialysis Sheath
