Abstract

In this study, we aimed to compare patient and technique survival between the patients, in whom peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter was removed due to severe peritonitis and then it was reinserted, and those, in whom PD catheter was removed due to non-peritonitis causes and then it was reinserted.
