Table 4 Association between interruption of PD and clinical findings

From: Peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis patients in Japan: a 2013 retrospective questionnaire survey of Japanese Society for Peritoneal Dialysis member institutions

Catheter removed Odds ratio 95 % CI interval P value
PD treatment periods 1.005 0.997–1.012 0.1848
Exit-site tunnel infection 2.560 1.292–5.071 0.007
Infection of intra-abdominal cavity 1.585 0.769–3.269 0.212
Frequency of past peritonitis 3.041 1.787–5.1741 <0.0001
  1. The association of several clinical findings and PD treatment withdrawal using logistic regression analysis. Four clinical findings were selected as statistically significant variables using the stepwise method, and exit-site tunnel infection and frequency of past peritonitis were significantly associated with withdrawal from PD treatment by logistic regression analysis
