Benefits of laparoscopy in the management of malfunctioning peritoneal dialysis catheters: 3 clinical cases
Laparoscopic techniques for placement of peritoneal dialysis catheters are becoming increasingly popular. There may be several problems related to the functioning of peritoneal dialysis catheters. This is a report of three cases illustrating the diagnostic and often therapeutic interest of laparoscopy in patients presenting with peritoneal dialysis catheter malfunction. Case one shows laparoscopic treatment for pleural leakage, case two catheter malposition due to inflammatory and hemorrhagic adhesions with the omentum and case three a total encapsulation of the dialysis catheter by fibrin.
