Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a generally accepted method for treatment of patients with the end-stage renal disease. A larger proportion of PD patients transfer to haemodialysis every year than the converse. Many of the underlying causes of transfer to haemodialysis are preventable. Infectious complications still remain the most common reason for transfer of PD patients to haemodialysis, catheter-related problems are the second most common cause. For PD to be effective it is very important to provide a quality peritoneal access with the insertion of PD catheter with minimum complications. With the development of minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic insertion of PD catheter is becoming widely accepted method, which showed to be effective with minor complications. In our institution, laparoscopic insertion of PD catheter in adult patients is a standard method for providing peritoneal access for chronic peritoneal dialysis.
