Abstract

Out of a series of 290 surgically inserted continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) catheters, 19 patients had 24 abdominal hernias repaired at the same time as CAPD catheter insertion. All catheters were used immediately after our normal postoperative break in protocol. There were no fluid leaks from the hernia repair site but 3 catheters failed due to complications unrelated to the hernia repair. CAPD technique survival was not adversely affected in the hernia repair group.
