Frequently Asked Questions

QuestionAnswer
Can the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit be used for internal repairs?No. According to the product's Instructions for Use, the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit can be used to lengthen or repair the external portion of any Kendall peritoneal catheter.
How long does the external part of the peritoneal dialysis catheter have to be in order to use the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit for repairs?According to the product's Instructions for Use, to be repaired, the undamaged, external portion of the indwelling catheter must be at least 3cm long.
What is Medical Grade Silicone Adhesive, Type A?According to the product's Instructions for Use, Medical Adhesive - Type A is a translucent silicone bonding material that contains no solvents and cures at room temperature upon exposure to atmospheric moisture.
Does the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit come packaged with the silicone adhesive glue?No. Silicone Adhesive is packaged individually and must be ordered separately to ensure maximum shelf-life. See order information under Item #8810807001.
How long does it take for the Medical Grade Silicone Adhesive, Type A to cure?According to the product's Instructions for Use, curing time depends upon the thickness of the applied adhesive layer, the relative humidity and the accessibility of atmospheric moisture to the curing adhesive. A relative humidity level between 20 and 60 percent is recommended for optimal curing at room temperature. Dry heat will not accelerate the cure and should not be used. A minimum of 72 hours is recommended for curing a peritoneal dialysis catheter. If the adhesive still feels tacky after 72 hours, reclose the mold and leave it on the catheter for an additional 24 hours. If bubbles are present in the mold, apply additional adhesive to fill them, reclose the mold and allow to cure for an additional 24 hours. Please refer to the product's Instructions for Use for product-specific detailed instructions.
Can routine peritoneal dialysis be performed while the Silicone Adhesive Glue is curing?According to the product's Instructions for Use, routine peritoneal dialysis can be performed while the adhesive is curing.
Should I leave the glue mold on after the catheter has been repaired?No. Remove and discard the glue mold when the adhesive has cured.
What comes packaged with the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit?The PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit contains the following components: 1) 15cm silicone rubber catheter extension with double-barbed connector, 2) hinged, plastic glue mold, 3.8cm in length with a plastic locking ring and 3) BETA-CAP™ Adapter, Cap and Clamp.
How long is the silicone rubber catheter extension in the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit?The silicone rubber catheter extension in the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit is 15cm in length and has an internal diameter (I.D.) of 2.6mm or 8Fr. and an outer diameter (O.D.) of 4.9mm or 15Fr.
How do I calculate the priming volume of the newly repaired peritoneal dialysis catheter?According to the product's Instructions for Use, to calculate the priming volume of the newly repaired peritoneal dialysis catheter, one must know the length of the original catheter the patient had in place prior to the repair. Then measure the difference (in centimeters) between the length of the indwelling catheter removed and the length of the repair extension used. Multiply the difference by the correction factor (0.0548cc/cm). This will give you the amount of priming volume to be added or subtracted from the initial priming volume. NOTE: If the section of catheter removed is shorter than the repair extension, the volume calculated is added to the catheter's original priming volume. If the section of catheter removed is longer than the repair extension, then the volume calculated is subtracted from the catheter's original priming volume.
How is the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit packaged?All components in the PERI-PATCH™ Repair Kit are double packaged; the inner package can be placed directly on a sterile field.
