A Systemic Review on Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Type and the Resulting Complications

Soumya Pamnani


Abstract: Kidneys are the important excretory organs of the body. The rate of kidney kidney failure are increasing day by day.1 in 5 adults with high blood pressure have kidney failure. Although kidney transplantation remains the preferred therapeutic option, peritoneal dialysis continues to play a vital part in the management of end - stage renal illness. This review discusses the strategies for implanting peritoneal dialysis catheters for the treatment of kidney dysfunction. End - stage renal disease is effectively treated with peritoneal dialysis. The geometry of the intraperitoneal section, the amount of cuffs, and the subcutaneous layout are all aspects of PD catheter design that might affect catheter performance. Although improvements to insertion techniques and catheter design, catheter dysfunction and infection continue to be a substantial source of morbidity and a barrier to successful dialysis. The coiled and straight catheters are the two frequently used peritoneal dialysis catheters. In this review I have analysed that both catheters have its own pros and cons. There are various types of catheters but the main focus is to use it in a skilled procedure and avoid infection.
