If you are planning to have or are currently receiving haemodialysis for chronic kidney disease, you may need to have a dialysis catheter inserted into your body if a fistula or graft formation has not been possible or appropriate for you. This leaflet explains more about tunnelled haemodialysis catheters, also known as lines or permcaths.
