摘要

Aims: To reduce peritoneal dialysis-related infections, Moncrief-Popovich (MP) designed a special catheter and implantation technique. Herein we report our experience of patients treated with the MP and conventional approach. Methods: A total of 214 patients were divided into three groups according to catheter type and implantation technique: group A received a MP catheter (MPC) via MP technique (n = 27); group B received Tenckhoff catheters via MP technique (n = 32), and group C received Tenckhoff catheters via conventional technique (n = 155). Data were collected for infection and catheter survival. Results: The catheter survival and peritonitis rate was similar in our study groups. Age was found to be the significant factor associated with peritonitis rate. Conclusions: Although the MP technique was not associated with a lower peritonitis rate in our practice, the possible benefit of less healthcare costs is still considerable.
