Peritoneal dialysis-associated peritonitis outcomes reported in trials and observational studies: A systematic review.

CONCLUSION: Large variability exists in the definitions, methods of reporting, and analysis of PD-associated peritonitis across trials and observational studies. Standardizing definitions for reporting of peritonitis and associated outcomes will better enable assessment of the comparative effect of interventions on peritonitis. This will facilitate continuous quality improvement measures through reliable benchmarking of this patient-important outcome across centers and countries.

CONCLUSIONS: Dalbavancin 1500 mg intravenously can be utilized without dose adjustment in peritoneal dialysis patients and will likely achieve necessary peritoneal fluid concentrations to treat peritonitis caused by typical gram-positive pathogens. PMID: 32122898 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study investigated whether patients benefit from the use of a surgical girdle and specific dressing postoperatively to prevent pain and tunnel infections. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 85 consecutive patients, the development of tunnel infections was followed. The patients used a surgical girdle when they were in supine position from day 1 to day 3. The peritoneal dialysis catheter was fixed in a curvature avoiding stretch in the exit. A total of 53 patients participated in a retrospective questionnaire to evaluate abdominal pain within the first 3 days after surgery either with or without girdle. A visual ana...

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 The number of patients receiving peritoneal dialysis has increased worldwide. Herein, we report the first case to our knowledge of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis caused by Micrococcus aloeverae, which was initially reported to be caused by Micrococcus luteus in the dialysate culture report but later identified by 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) gene sequencing as M. aloeverae. A 59-year-old woman visited the emergency room due to abdominal pain. She was hospitalized with CAPD peritonitis. The patient initially responded to empirical antibiotic treatment comprising intra...

AbstractA 53-year-old man receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD) for 4  months presented with PD-related peritonitis (abdominal pain, turbid peritoneal dialysate effluent, white blood cell in peritoneal dialysate effluent 5350/µL, C-reactive protein 25.56 mg/dL) caused byDermacoccus (D.)nishinomiyaensis. He was first treated empirically with cefazolin and ceftazidime. After detection ofD. nishinomiyaensis in the peritoneal effluent culture collected on the first day of hospitalization, the antibiotics were changed to amoxicillin and vancomycin. After confirming negative-conversion of peritoneal effluent culture...

Authors: Dumor K, Malhotra K Abstract A 67-year-old white man with a history of end-stage renal disease receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD) presented with acute onset of vomiting, chills, and abdominal pain. He was diagnosed with PD-associated peritonitis secondary to Pasteurella. After failure of 3 weeks of antibiotic treatment, catheter loss occurred. On follow-up, the patient was found to have extensive intra-abdominal adhesions precluding placement of a new PD catheter. PMID: 30480538 [PubMed - in process]

We present a case of a 40-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease secondary to chronic glomerulo-nephritis on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (PD). She presented with severe abdominal pain and a cloudy peritoneal fluid. The fluid was cultured according to our unit protocol. The organism isolated was identified as SM; this was after the patient was treated for SM peritonitis one week earlier. The response to treatment with ceftazidime was poor despite being sensitive in vitro. The peritoneal catheter was removed due to rapid clinical deterioration. Piperacillin-tazobactam (PIP/TAZ) monotherapy was successfully...

CONCLUSIONS: This updated review strengthens evidence that neutral pH, low GDP PD solution improves RRF and urine volume preservation with high certainty. These effects may be related to increased peritoneal solute transport and reduced peritoneal ultrafiltration, although the evidence for these outcomes is of low certainty due to significant heterogeneity and suboptimal methodological quality. Icodextrin prescription increased peritoneal ultrafiltration and mitigated uncontrolled fluid overload with moderate certainty. The effects of either neutral pH, low GDP solution or icodextrin on peritonitis, technique survival and ...

Abstract Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is the most serious complication of long-term peritoneal dialysis (PD). EPS is diagnosed by clinical symptoms (abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and anorexia.) and image study (intestinal expansion, peritoneal thickening and calcification, and ascites.). Steroid therapy and surgery are recommended as the treatment of EPS. Here, we report a case of EPS with steroid-resistant massive ascites successfully treated with peritoneal lavage. A 59-year-old female with end-stage kidney disease secondary to hypertension was started on PD in 2003. Due to recurrent ex...
