AbstractThe experience of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis in children of the Queen Mary Hospital for the past 11 years was reviewed. Seven boys and three girls (aged 4.3 to 15.9 years) were treated for a mean of 27 months (range 5 to 58 months). There was significant biochemical improvement and patients led an active life on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The commonest complications were peritonitis, occurring on average once per 10 patient-months and mostly due to Staphylococcus spp. The median catheter survival time was 30 months. There were two technique failures due to fungal peritonitis which necessitated transfer to haemodialysis due to fungal peritonitis. The only mortality was due to concurrent cardiac disease. This review supports that children with renal failure in Hong Kong can be maintained on long term dialysis with a reasonable quality of life. However, significant morbidity due to infective and mechanical complications still exists. Continuous ambulatory peitonitis dialysis remains a temporary treatment modality while patients are waiting for renal transplantation.
