Treatment of recurrent and resistant CAPD peritonitis by temporary withdrawal of peritoneal dialysis without removal of the catheter



Treatment of recurrent and resistant CAPD peritonitis by temporary withdrawal of peritoneal dialysis without removal of the catheter



Advances in Peritoneal Dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis 11: 176-178



Recurrent and resistant continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis is usually treated by removal of the catheter and temporary hemodialysis. We treated 3 patients: 1 with resistant Klebsiella peritonitis and 2 with recurrent peritonitis (one due to Staphylococcus and the other to Enterococcus), by stopping CAPD for a 2-4 week period, leaving the catheter in situ and continuing antibiotic therapy. All 3 patients had resolution of their infections and restarted CAPD. This therapeutic modality reduced catheter replacements, limited admissions to the hospital, reduced psychological impact, and diminished risks and costs of CAPD.
