Abstract

From 1978 to 1984, 150 consecutive CAPD catheters have been implanted in our institution. Early (first-week) and late (up to 44 months) follow-up is presented with special attention to possible surgical related complications. A paramedian incision and an original antileakage technique were used in 95% of the catheters. With this combination, hernia and leakage rates are very low (0.7%). With the patient-training program, described here, and the installation of the catheter in the outpatient department, peritonitis during the first week dropped from 20% to 0% (p < 0.05). Previous abdominal operations significantly increase early failures (p < 0.05). Skin exit-site infections were not seen in our patients. The most frequent long-term complications were catheter colonization, i.e. recurrent peritonitis with the same organism, and repeated peritonitis episodes leading to obstruction. The one year actuarial catheter survival is 40%. This paper discusses factors responsible for as well as possible improvement of this low figure.
