FERREIRA, Ana Carina et al. Current guidelines in peritoneal dialysis - Part I. Port J Nephrol Hypert [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.1, pp.28-35. ISSN 0872-0169.

A successful peritoneal dialysis program follows evidence-based practice guidelines. In this first article we review the current guidelines on catheter insertion and on prevention of catheter-related infections, both subjects of extreme importance not only to initiate and also to maintain patients on peritoneal dialysis. The treatment of catheter-related infections is not part of the purpose of this article.

Keywords : peritoneal dialysis; guidelines; catheter; infection.
