Peritoneal dialysis is an extrarenal epuration modality which uses physiological properties of peritoneum as a dialysis membrane. Despite the improvement of peritoneal dialysis techniques in the last ten years, peritonitis remains one of the most redoubt complications. Peritonitis may sometimes lead to technical failures, which need catheter removing, but rarely lead to death. Our retrospective study at the dialysis center of CHUV has analyzed factors which can predict this kind of complication. It calculates peritonitis rate and median peritonitis free-survival for different groups of patients. It also describes causatives organisms and their sensitivity to antibiotics.
