Questions About PD
Surgery is urgently needed. If there is a peritonitis, peritoneal catheter would be removed simultaneously. Otherwise the catheter may be filled with PD solution + sodium heparine until peritoneal dialysis could be restarted
In the peri-operative and post-operative period, PD would have to be stopped and the patient transferred to HD. PD can be resumed after 6-8 weeks once there is complete healing.
