Resuming peritoneal dialysis after catheter removal due to complicated peritonitis
ConclusionsResuming PD after severe peritonitis requiring PC removal is feasible but a high proportion of patients do not restart PD for non-medical reasons, usually older patients with higher Charlson index. A properly structured interview would be a useful tool that could improve return to technique in these patients.
CONCLUSIONS: In this randomized controlled trial, we were unable to demonstrate that regular, targeted testing and retraining of new PD patients increased the time to first peritonitis or reduced the rate of peritonitis, as the study comprised patients with a low risk of peritonitis, was underpowered, open to type 1 statistical error, and contamination between groups.

Conclusion: This is the first study to define 9-year mortality predictors in PD patients in our center. Although peritonitis is the most feared complication of PD, our study showed that peritonitis did not reduce patient survival. PMID: 32041385 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS Peritoneal dialysis is not a risk factor for postoperative complications after SPKT. PMID: 31320604 [PubMed - in process]
This study developed a prediction tool for transition from PD to HD.Study DesignRetrospective cohort study.Setting &ParticipantsAdults initiating PD between January 2008 and December 2011, followed up through June 2015, for whom data were available in the US Renal Data System (USRDS).PredictorsClinical characteristics at PD initiation and peritonitis claims.OutcomesTransfer to HD, with the competing outcomes of death and kidney transplantation.Analytical ApproachOutcomes were ascertained from USRDS treatment history files. Subdistribution hazards (competing-risk) models were fit using clinical characteristics at PD ini...
Conclusions: In selected cases, particularly in severe diuretic refractory heart failure, PDC placement placed by a nephrologist is feasible with a low rate of complications even in a low-volume center setting. The catheters we placed were all functioning with only minor complications and PD could be started immediately. PMID: 31162993 [PubMed - in process]
We report a case of Serratia liquefaciens peritonitis due to defiance of hygienic practices which presented with severe abdominal pain and fever and led to loss of PD access. PMID: 31249244 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract Published data on the outcome of maintenance peritoneal dialysis (PD) since the initiation of PD in Tunisia is poor. The purpose of this study is to report long-term clinical outcomes of PD patients through a 10-year experience at a single unit. This is a retrospective review of the medical records of 182 PD patients who were followed up from January 2006 to June 2016. All patients were followed till death, renal transplant, switch over to hemodialysis (HD) or the end of the study in June 2016. The mean age of the incident patients was 43.93 ± 16.95 years. Nineteen (10.4%) were aged>65 years and...
ConclusionThe patients with ESRD caused by lupus nephritis who underwent KT had better long-term outcomes and survival rates than those who received HD or PD. This implies that KT is the better choice of renal replacement therapy in the patients with ESRD caused by lupus nephritis.

Conclusion: In renal transplant recipients with DGF, post-transplant PD led to increased treatment failure. PD did not result in rapid recovery of transplanted renal function, and had a high probability of peritonitis.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:1813 –1821
