Tunneled Peritoneal Catheter Placement/Removal

Tunneled Peritoneal Catheter Placement/Removal

Tunneled peritoneal catheter insertion is performed as a treatment option for recurrent ascites (fluid in the abdomen). Patients with metastatic cancers or liver disease are typically candidates for this procedure. Patients with ascites due to cancer are able to have a tunneled peritoneal catheter placed to relieve their abdomen fullness, pain, and breathing issues. This procedure is performed using conscious sedation, ultrasound and x-ray guidance.  The patient can connect the tunneled catheter to disposable drainage bottles, at home.  This eliminates repeated office visits to have their fluid drained.
