The question of early survival benefit in peritoneal dialysis is addressed in this study of CORR incident adult dialysis patients. By comparing the survival of incident PD patients with those who initiated HD with a central venous cathter or with a functional arteriovenous fistula or graft, it was determined that the use of CVCs in incident HD patients largely accounts for the early survival benefit seen with PD.
