Abstract

Background: Infections are the most common complications in patients with peritoneal dialysis (PD). The association between the anatomical localization of the exit site (ES) and infectious complications is unclear. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between the anatomic location of the ES and infectious complications of PD.
