Medical specialty bags are used to treat different medical conditions. However, many risks and complications are associated with these bags. Dermatological complications are the most common problems associated with medical specialty bags, accounting for 45%-50% of patients. Peristomal skin problem is also a common issue that accounts for one in three doctors' visits.

Likewise, possible side effects of CAPD bags include peritonitis and increase in weight due to continuous glucose supply. Also, dialysate leakage in pleural cavity results in hydrothorax.

Also, urine leakage around the catheter and bladder stone increases the chance of complication.
