Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: This review aims to look at the benefits and harms of different PD catheter insertion techniques. To establish whether a specific technique used to place catheters in adults and children, who are new to PD, result in any significant differences in clinical outcomes. Insertion techniques will be further defined as peritoneoscopic, percutaneous, fluoroscopic, laparoscopic insertion or open surgery. To identify which technique offers optimal clinical outcomes and minimises post-procedure complications including postoperative haemorrhage, PD catheter dysfunction, exit site infection/peritonitis and bowel perforation.
