Indications, Safety and Warnings

Ritus™ peritoneal dialysis catheter tunneling tool kit

The Ritus™ tunneling tool kit is used to both create a tunnel tract through subcutaneous tissue and seal the end of the catheter. This allows the external portion of the Covidien™ Argyle™* peritoneal dialysis catheter to be temporarily buried in advance of dialysis for patients that are candidates for delayed peritoneal dialysis treatment. Risks may include peritonitis and exit site infection.

Do not embed the external portion of the catheter in a separate procedure than the catheter implantation. Do not use this product if the patient is not a candidate for delayed peritoneal dialysis treatment or requires immediate peritoneal dialysis treatment. Not for use in pediatric, infant and neonate.
