A new technical approach has been described for the treatment of patients on CAPD. The new approach is based on the use of a two-bag system and closed connection by a connector to the Tenckhoff catheter. After each dialyzate exchange the patient discards the entire system and is completely bag-free, unlike the Oreopoulos CAPD technique. Using this new procedure we have markedly reduced the incidence of peritonitis and we have made the patient free from carrying an uncomfortable burden during the interval of solution exchange.
