TITAN-PORT D (dialysis) is a fully implantable, titanium PORT system providing an access facility for per-forming veno-venous dialysis. The set contains two identical port chambers with a self-sealing silicone membrane and a double lumen polyurethane cathe-ter each case with one inlet and one outlet connec-tion to a Port chamber, and two srews for fixation of catheter to port outlets. Each system also includes two special puncture needles, introducer set, tunnel-izer, user instructions and patient ID documentation.
The port chamber consists of hypoallergenic, bio-compatible titanium. This material is non-magnetic. The chamber has the following dimensions: width 24 mm, length 36 mm, height 17.5 mm, weight 25g, internal volume 0.6ml, outlet pipe diameter 3.5 mm. The base has 2 suture openings for securing the system to the fascia. Port chamber and catheter can be disconnected and are interconected via a srew twist mechanism that is connected with a sleeve to the outlet pipe.
The silicone membrane in the port can be punctured up to 1000 times with a suitable noncoring puncture needle. The membrane possesses high pressure stability and holds the needle securely in position.
