Abstract

Peritonitis defined by the National CAPD registry as turbid dialysate with white blood count greater than 100 cells/mm3 is the major complication from continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Peritoneal infections can be recurrent and are the most frequently cited cause for electively terminating CAPD without transplantation. This report will focus on multiple incidents of peritonitis, culture results and associated reasons for terminating therapy. In addition, a partial logistic likelihood model will be used to analyze the tri-annual follow-up periods to determine risk factors for recurrent peritonitis.
