In many centres, including our own, PD catheter insertion technique has evolved by laparoscopic surgery. An alternative method of catheter insertion is performed by radiologists using a percutaneous modified Seldinger technique under fluoroscopic guidance. However, there are no clinical trials comparing these two methods of catheter insertion. METHODS From 1 April 1999 to 30 August 2004… CONTINUE READING
