MedLine Citation:
PMID:  8201508     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Experience with acute peritoneal dialysis gathered over the last 10 years shows that, in 63 premature newborns and infants (up to 1 year of age), a standardized surgical procedure using a silicone catheter with a Dacron cuff (individually glued to fit) has a lower complication rate and is more effective than placement of a trocar catheter.
