Where does a Tessio line go?
The Medcomp® Tesio® Catheter is designed for long term hemodialysis and apheresis. It may be inserted percutaneously and is ideally placed in the internal jugular vein. Although this catheter may be inserted into the subclavian vein, the internal jugular vein of an adult patient is the preferred site.
Where is TDC placed?
A tunneled central line is a thin flexible hollow tube (catheter) that is tunneled under the skin before entering a large vein. It is most commonly placed in the neck into the internal jugular vein and extends down to a larger vein just above the heart (cavoatrial junction).
What is tunneled and non-tunneled?
There are two types of central venous catheters: tunneled and non-tunneled. Tunneled CVC’s are placed under the skin and meant to be used for a longer duration of time. Non-tunneled catheters are designed to be temporary and may be put into a large vein near your neck, chest, or groin.
