Abstract

During the past few years, an increasing proportion of patients with end-stage renal disease are being managed with CAPD and, consequently, require a simple and safe access to the peritoneal cavity. Initially the subcutaneous peritoneal cuff was intended to prevent periluminal propagation of organisms and their entry to the peritoneum, but it remains to be established whether it achieves this purpose. Another important modification was the Toronto Western Hospital catheter, which was designed to prevent outflow (one-way) obstruction. This catheter is available with 2 cuffs (peritoneal and subcutaneous) or one cuff only at the peritoneal site. This paper describes the results of a prospective clinical study, which compared single vs double-cuff TWH catheters.
