Forty-seven catheters (35 swan neck and 12 Tenckhoff ones) were placed in the PDF group (1.27 catheters per patient) and 85 (62 swan neck and 23 Tenckhoff) in the HDPD group (1.16 catheters per patient) during the period of study.
In the HDPD group, there were 98 admissions (27.5% of them due to cardiovascular disorders and 17.5% for peritonitis) in forty-nine out of 73 patients in the time at risk, which equates to 0.32 admissions per patient/year, and the number of days of hospitalisation per patient/year was 1.88.
The RR for diabetes was 0.60 and 0.67 in the PDF and HDPD groups, respectively.
Although the participation of RRF is obvious in the first group, in the HDPD group, the target was reached relying heavily on peritoneal clearance, with the largest peritoneal fluid delivery as well; this was also observed by Bammens et al.
