Unblocking peritoneal dialysis catheters with a combination of urokinase and Fogarty catheter manipulation

, : Unblocking peritoneal dialysis catheters with a combination of urokinase and Fogarty catheter manipulation. Advances in Peritoneal Dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis 11: 200-201

The authors report three cases of peritoneal dialysis catheter obstruction in children. The catheters were successfully cleared by a combination of urokinase and Fogarty catheter manipulation. This technique can be used to clear fibrin and omentum from obstructed peritoneal dialysis catheters.
