Managing PD Catheter Complications: Exit-site/Tunnel Infections, Relapsing Peritonitis, and Acute Abdominal Emergencies

Infectious complications are the most common cause of catheter loss resulting in the patient transferring to hemodialysis. This second part of the series on Managing PD Catheter Complications focuses on exit-site/tunnel infections, relapsing peritonitis and acute abdominal emergencies. This presentation includes an interactive digital algorithm, surgical management/treatment options as well as case studies to enhance learning and retention of material.
