Brief Summary:
This is a prospective, multi-center health economic study in Canada. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either the study or control dialysis catheter. The primary objective is to evaluate resource utilization in Ontario related to hemodialysis catheter placement including tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) usage, catheter exchange rates, catheter patency, and missed dialysis days.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Is indicated for a dialysis catheter for the purpose of attaining long-term vascular access for hemodialysis. Long-term vascular access is defined by physician anticipated duration of hemodialysis for three months or longer.
  • Is ≥ 18 years of age.
  • Is indicated to receive dialysis treatment at a location where dialysis treatment data will be accessible by the study team.
  • Is able to comprehend and have signed the Informed Consent Form (ICF) to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Has known or suspected presence of other device-related infection, bacteremia, or septicemia or has been treated with antibiotics for documented or suspected infection within prior 45 days.
  • Is receiving prophylactic anti-coagulation or anti-platelet pharmacotherapy for the purpose of central venous catheter (CVC) patency (anti-coagulation or anti-platelet pharmacotherapy for therapeutic indications do not exclude the patient from the study).
  • Has severe chronic obstructive lung disease.
  • Had past radiation therapy at the prospective insertion site.
  • Had previous episodes of venous thrombosis or vascular surgical procedures at the prospective insertion site.
  • Has local tissue factors that will prevent proper device stabilization and/or access.
  • Has a stent placed in the vessel where the catheter will be placed
  • Is pregnant
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse in the past 12 months obtained from patient record and/or interview
  • Subjects who weigh ≤ 30 kg.
