Abstract

We have described a prospective controlled study of the Oreopoulos-Zellerman peritoneal dialysis connection system which is based on the principle of chemical sterilization of the connector between each dialysis exchange. This system, in a short-term study of 27 high-risk patients, has resulted in a fourfold difference in the peritonitis rate between the concurrent control group (1/8.8 patient months) and the O-Z group (1/35.7 patient months). The probability of developing peritonitis by 6 mos was 0.15 using the O-Z connector and 0.46 in the control group.
