Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis is a recommended mode of renal replacement therapy in those with vascular access failures. Complications of Surgical placement of catheter and Percutaneous technique by Nephrologist are well described. Complications may occur during the procedure or after the procedure. During the placement of the catheter, hollow viscus perforation is known to occur. Patients are given instructions of using laxative , emptying bladder before surgery in order to avoid bladder or bowel injury. Bladder perforation is one of the rare complication of CAPD technique.It is expected to occur commonly with rigid catheters than the soft catheters used in CAPD. Herein we report a case of bladder perforation during the procedure of placement of percutaneous CAPD catheterization.
