Mortality risk factors in patients who developed peritonitis in chronic peritoneal dialysis at the Central Military Hospital of Bogotá. Rev. Colomb. Nefrol.

In Colombia, chronic peritoneal dialysis (CPD) is one of the most common forms of onset of chronic renal replacement therapy. Complications associated with therapy are low. However, the peritonitis associated with CKD has been related to change from therapeutic mode to chronic hemodialysis with increased hospitalization rates. A case-control study was performed to evaluate the mortality and risk factors associated in patients who presented peritonitis in CPS in the period from January 1st of 2010 to December 31st of 2012. The risk factors identified for the development of peritonitis and mortality were not statistically significant. The cases of peritonitis attributed to fatigue of the caregiver presented an increased risk of recurrence and relapse. In regard to the risk of mortality it was found to be 1.75 times greater in men, 1.6 times higher in males, 2.2 times greater in patients older than 75 years, 3.5 times higher in diabetic patients and 5.6 times
higher in hypertensive patients.
