Peritoneal Dialysis Access and Exit-Site Care Including Surgical Aspects

  • P. Kathuria
  • Z.J. Twardowski
  • W.K. Nichols

The key to a successful peritoneal dialysis program is a permanent and safe access to the peritoneal cavity. The catheter should provide optimal and consistent hydraulic function and form a stable interface with the body. A well-healed peritoneal dialysis catheter prevents the periluminal migration of bacteria and leakage of dialysate.
