The effect of the Y-set on catheter infection rates in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients.

Abstract

We hypothesized that catheter infections in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients may be reduced with a disconnect system. We examined this theory in 116 CAPD patients over a 2-year period. In CAPD patients who switched to the Y-set (n = 22), the catheter infection rate decreased from one per 13 patient-months to one per 26 patient… (More)
