Groshen Picc Line

Is there any one out there that knows of,(and thereby where I may get), a Groshen picc line?  The picc line I had required a Heparin flush.  Unfortunately, after my fourth treatment I had an anaphalactic reaction to the Heparin flush.  They had to remove my picc line.  Apparently,from what I've been told, the Groshen picc line does not require a Heparin flush.

I think it's spelled "Groshong line", a special type of PICC line.  There's a wikipedia entry on it.  

Wouldn't your doctor be the one to put you in touch with someone who can take care of finding and placing the line?
