Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension, Department of Medicine, George Washington University Medical Center, Washington, D.C. 20037, USA.Contributions to nephrology (Impact Factor: 1.8). 02/2007; 154:129-38. DOI: 10.1159/000096958
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) exchanges require sterile equipment, supplies, and technique. Sterility may be maintained with single use.

Techniques available for disinfection of lines and transfer sets in PD will be reviewed.
