Abstract

To prevent infectious complications in peritoneal dialysis, procedures of caring for peritoneal catheters must be followed. As per standard practice, the exit site of the peritoneal catheter should be secured with an appropriately made dressing. However, it appears that it is acceptable to keep the peritoneal catheter without a dressing in some special situations. The following study presents cases of patients successfully managed in this way without infectious complications.
