Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis is widely used in the maintenance of patients with chronic renal failure. Obstruction or displacement of the chronic dialysis catheter, which prevents dialysate drainage, can compromise ongoing dialysis. Conservative approaches (body position change, saline infusion, and enema) are often unsuccessful and more aggressive therapy may be required. We report the use of peritoneoscopy to reposition malfunctioning peritoneal dialysis catheters. The procedure proved to be safe and gave excellent long-term results.
