The objective is to understand the best way to place Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) catheters, and the best way to collect data regarding their function in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Phase 1: We will carry out a detailed examination of existing returned pilot data with emphasis on data fields with poor data completeness and perform root cause analysis, and assess deficiencies in data field definition to identify improvements to be implemented. We will construct and disseminate electronic survey material to all study centres with targeted visits by the Principle Investigator undertaken. These visits will facilitate insight into local organization of data collection including interaction with designated individuals responsible for data returns. PD training days will be organized with emphasis on clinical practice feedback utilizing data acquired in the initial phases. Hospital Episode Statistics will be linked to existing acquired PD patient information to ensure the accuracy of collected data. An online data acquisition system will be developed to allow direct data entry from centres.
Phase 2: On-going and sustained data acquisition performed on a prospective basis.
Phase 3: Primary data analysis including clinical practice variation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to identify site specific PD catheter functionality variation. Additionally, patient and site specific characteristics that predict clinical outcomes in PD will be identified and characterised.
Phase 4: Clinical guidelines will be developed.

- Peritoneal dialysis catheter "survival" (sustained function) at 365 days post-insertion (insertion date) [ Time Frame: 1 Year ]
- Functional (mechanical) catheter failure
- Complication induced catheter failure - Infection, Hemorrhage, Dialysate Leakage & Bowel Perforation
- Time to catheter failure [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]
- Catheter failure time (days elapsed from insertion to failure <365 days)
- Catheter failure time (days elapsed from insertion to failure >365 days)
- Missing Data [ Time Frame: Baseline & 1 Year ]Missing mandatory data fields
- Mortality (all cause) [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]
- Co-morbid Hospitalization Events [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]Non-fatal medical events requiring hospitalization, excluding PD related hospitalization
- Infection events not resulting in catheter failure [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]
- Exit site / tunnel infection (early): suspected or definite infection around catheter exit site requiring intervention up to 2 weeks following catheter insertion
- Exit site / tunnel infection (late): suspected or definite infection around catheter exit site requiring intervention after 2 weeks following catheter insertion
- Peritonitis (early): peritonitis within 2 weeks of catheter insertion
- Peritonitis (late): peritonitis after 2 weeks following catheter insertion
- Leak events not resulting in catheter failure [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]
- Catheter leak events (early): suspected or definite catheter site leak requiring intervention up to 2 weeks following catheter insertion
- Catheter leak events (late): suspected or definite catheter site leak requiring intervention after 2 weeks following catheter insertion
- Modality change [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]Change of modality from PD to any other form of renal replacement therapy
- Catheter non-usage [ Time Frame: Within 1 Year ]Catheters inserted but not used for reasons other than failed initial therapy (e.g. Moncrieff)
