Can a pt with a past history of liver transplant 10 years ago- try PD?

The short answer is yes. Please watch for delayed wound healing after the catheter is placed in patients on long-term steroids (would need a longer break-in period – interval between the time of surgery and first use of usual instillation volumes). Also, watch for higher risk for infection in these patients.
