Learn More About Peritoneal Dialysis (PD)

Merit’s line of Flex-Neck Adult, Adolescent and Pediatric Peritoneal Dialysis Catheters have an internal diameter (ID) that is 35% larger than some competitive catheters. Infant catheters are available in one and two cuff configurations. Each catheter kit contains a unique stenciling system for improved placement accuracy.

The Flex-Neck® Adult catheter has an internal diameter of 3.5 mm, allowing up to 30% higher flow rates than other catheters currently on the U.S. market. Our Flex-Neck Classic and ARC shapes are designed to accommodate various tunneling techniques and exit site options.
