Long-term peritoneal dialysis causes morphologic and functional changes in the peritoneal membrane. Although mesothelial-mesenchymal transition of peritoneal mesothelial cells is a key process leading to peritoneal fibrosis, and bioincompatible peritoneal dialysis solutions (glucose, glucose degradation products, and advanced glycation end products or a combination) are responsible for altering mesothelial cell function and proliferation, mechanisms underlying these processes remain largely unclear. Peritoneal fibrosis has 2 cooperative parts, the fibrosis process itself and the inflammation...

Being aware of controversies and lack of evidence in peritoneal dialysis (PD) training, the Nursing Liaison Committee of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) has undertaken a review of PD training programs around the world in order to develop a syllabus for PD training. This syllabus has been developed to help PD nurses train patients and caregivers based on a consensus of training program reviews, utilizing current theories and principles of adult education. It is designed as a 5-day program of about 3 hours per day, but both duration and content may be adjusted based on the learner...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although a peritoneal equilibration test yields data on three parameters (4-hour dialysate/plasma creatinine, 4- to 0-hour dialysate glucose, and 4-hour ultrafiltration volume), all studies have focused on the prognostic value of dialysate/plasma creatinine for patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. Because dialysate 4- to 0-hour glucose and ultrafiltration volume may be superior in predicting daily ultrafiltration, the likely mechanism for the association of peritoneal equilibration test results with outcomes, we hypothesized that they are superior to dialysate/plasma creatinine for risk prediction...

UNLABELLED:BACKGROUND: Conventional management for peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related infectious and mechanical complications that fails treatment includes catheter removal and hemodialysis (HD) via a central venous catheter with the end result that the majority of patients will not return to PD. Simultaneous catheter replacement (SCR) can retain patients on PD by avoiding the scenario of staged removal and reinsertion of catheters. The aim of this study was to evaluate a protocol for SCR without interruption of PD...

UNLABELLED:OBJECTIVE: Peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related infection is a common cause of catheter loss and the main reason for PD drop-out. Exit-site infection (ESI) is a pathway to developing tunnel infection and peritonitis, hence rigorous exit-site care has always been emphasized in PD therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of exit-site dressing vs non-dressing on the rate of PD-related infection. ♦ METHODS: A prospective randomized controlled study was conducted in prevalent PD patients at the Hospital Tuanku Jaafar Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia, from April 2011 until April 2013...

Despite substantial advances in peritoneal dialysis (PD) as a renal replacement modality, PD-related infection remains an important cause of morbidity, technique failure, and mortality. This review describes the microbiology and outcomes of PD peritonitis and catheter infection, followed by a discussion of several strategies that may reduce the risk of PD-related infections. Strategies that are reviewed include use of antibiotics at the time of PD catheter insertion, selection of PD catheter design and insertion technique, patient training, PD connectology, exit site prophylaxis, periprocedural prophylaxis, fungal prophylaxis, and choice of PD solutions...

BACKGROUND: Gram-positive bacteria are the major causative pathogens of peritonitis and exit site infection in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD). We investigated the cost-effectiveness of regular application of mupirocin at the exit site in PD recipients from the perspective of health care providers in Hong Kong. METHODS: A decision tree was designed to simulate outcomes of incident PD patients with and without regular application of mupirocin over a 1-year period...

BACKGROUND: Peritonitis is a common complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) that is associated with significant morbidity including death, hospitalisation, and need to change from PD to haemodialysis. Treatment is aimed to reduce morbidity and recurrence. This is an update of a review first published in 2008. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the benefits and harms of treatments for PD-associated peritonitis. SEARCH METHODS: For this review update we searched the Cochrane Renal Group's Specialised Register to March 2014 through contact with the Trials Search Co-ordinator using search terms relevant to this review...

BACKGROUND: Peritonitis is the most frequent serious complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). It has a major influence on the number of patients switching from CAPD to haemodialysis and has probably restricted the wider acceptance and uptake of CAPD as an alternative mode of dialysis.This is an update of a review first published in 2000. OBJECTIVES: This systematic review sought to determine if modifications of the transfer set (Y-set or double bag systems) used in CAPD exchanges are associated with a reduction in peritonitis and an improvement in other relevant outcomes...

AIM: To investigate the effect of gastric acid suppressants and prokinetics on peritonitis development in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS: This was a single-center, retrospective study. The medical records of 398 PD patients were collected from January 2000 to September 2012 and analyzed to compare patients with at least one episode of peritonitis (peritonitis group, group A) to patients who never had peritonitis (no peritonitis group, group B). All peritonitis episodes were analyzed to compare peritonitis caused by enteric organisms and peritonitis caused by non-enteric organisms...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a home therapy, and technique survival is related to the adherence to PD prescription at home. The presence of a home visit program could improve PD outcomes. We evaluated its effects on clinical outcome during 1 year of follow-up. METHODS: This was a case-control study. The case group included all 96 patients who performed PD in our center on January 1, 2013, and who attended a home visit program; the control group included all 92 patients who performed PD on January 1, 2008...

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter-associated infections remain a challenging cause of technique failure. Patient training and preventive measures are key elements in the management of infection rates. Twenty-seven of the 167 PD catheter transfer sets analyzed (19%) yielded a positive microbial culture (58% gram-negative bacteria). These results show that subclinical contamination, particularly from environmental gram-negative bacteria, is a potential hazard, indicating the need for a protocol for regular transfer set changes...

UNLABELLED:BACKGROUND: Peritoneal catheter tunnel and exit-site infection (TESI) complicates the clinical course of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Adherence to recommendations for catheter insertion, exit-site care, and management of Staphylococcus aureus (SAu) carriage reduces, but does not abrogate the risk of these infections. ♦ OBJECTIVE: To reappraise the risk profile for TESI in an experienced center with a long-term focus on management of SAu carriage and a low incidence of these infections...

Functional catheter problems are a major challenge for peritoneal dialysis (PD) programs. Here we performed a retrospective single-center study of 110 consecutive patients receiving a first PD catheter (swan neck double-cuff Missouri curled catheters, open surgical technique). Using postimplantation X-ray, the following categories were defined: swan neck angle (posterioanterio view (PA): under 45°, 45-90°, over 90°), inclination (angle between intramural part of catheter and horizontal line; lateral view: greater than/equal to 30°, under 30°), and the position of silicone bead relative to spine (PA view: L1-2, L3-4, lower) and catheter tip (PA view: hypogastric, umbilical, subcostal)...

Introduction. Laparotomy in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) is associated with an increased risk of morbidity. Furthermore, standard protocol recommends removal of the PD catheter when surgery on the intestine is required. As far as we are aware, this is the first case report of laparoscopic right hemicolectomy in a patient on automated PD where the PD catheter was left in situ. Case Report. A 61-year-old man man on APD who presented with a caecal carcinoma was stabilised on temporary haemodialysis (HD) prior to undergoing a laparoscopic right hemicolectomy without removal of the PD catheter...
