Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) patients may have non infectious abdominal complications that affect the survival of their dialysis treatment. It is important to document the origin of leakages and hernias, causes of catheter malfunction or haemoperitoneum. Therapeutic options will depend on investigations and include catheter removal or replacement, surgical intervention or eventual transfer to automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). In this paper we report our experience of the technical implementation of Peritoneography and Peritoneum Computed Tomography.
