Following the wonderful presentations by the speakers, Dr Georgi Abraham demonstrated his ‘make in India’ PD Catheter, a great offering to the developing countries and the advantages of this affordable catheter. The panel discussion was informative and engaged the audience thoroughly. There  were useful tips and ideas from Dr N Gopalakrishnan, Director of nephrology, Madras medical College,  Dr Suganya, Pediatric Nephrologist from Chennai and Dr Velaravind, senior Interventional Nephrologist from Trichy.

Having discussed simple and safe method of percutaneous insertion using peel away catheter, we will move onto more specific issues in catheter placement in the future.
