This prospective multicentre Canadian study followed 369 dialysis patients for an average of 1.3 years (224 patients chose PD and 145 chose HD). The authors found that the PD group required fewer access interventions to maintain dialysis access (2.5 versus 3.1 interventions per patient, adjusted odds ratio of 0.79 for PD versus HD, P = 0.005) and had a lower intervention rate (2.3 versus 1.9 per patient-year, adjusted rate ratio of 0.81 for PD versus HD, P = 0.04).
