Peritoneal Dialysis Access/Placement/Connectors

  • Beth Piraino

Abstract

Remarkable advances have occurred in connection technology reducing peritonitis due to touch contamination. Less progress has been made in reducing catheter related problems (1). The peritoneal dialysis catheter, therefore, remains the ‘Achilles’ heel’ of peritoneal dialysis (2). Catheter infections can lead to peritonitis, catheter loss, and transfer to hemodialysis (3, 4, 5). Catheter function may be inadequate requiring replacement. Considerable research has been focussed on designing and investigating new catheters that may decrease the risk of infection and mechanical failure
