The optimal approach to catheter exit-site care and catheter design in terms of catheter-related infections (e.g., exit-site infections, peritonitis) in children remains elusive. We retrospectively compared the incidence of exit-site infections and peritonitis in 33 pediatric peritoneal dialysis patients who used one of three exit-site care/catheter combinations. The catheters used were single-cuffed, curled Tenckhoff (T), and double-cuffed Swan neck (SN). Exit-site care included either… CONTINUE READING
