Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is one of the most commonly used dialysis methods in the clinic, and utilizes the nature of the peritoneum as a semipermeable membrane to exchange water and toxic solutes in the peritoneal cavity (1) . Detailed recommendations on the prevention and treatment of PD-associated peritonitis have been published by the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD), but there is a substantial variation in clinical practice among dialysis units Peritoneal Dialysis International's Review of table of contents for articles relating to the content of the guidelines Searches within the major renal journals (Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, Clinical Journal o Peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) are dialysis options for end-stage renal disease patients in whom preemptive kidney transplantation is not possible. The selection of PD or HD will usually be based on patient motivation, desire, geographic distance from an HD unit, physician and/or nurse bias, and patient education
Peritoneal Dialysis Benefit. Starting dialysis with a PDC is preferable to an HDC in terms of patient morbidity, mortality, and cost. It has also been shown in large observational retrospective studies that there is a survival advantage for PD over HD in the first 1 to 3 years of dialysis. The 2013 Annual Data Report from the United States. Taking into account only the dialysis therapy, in Poland about 92% of patients receive hemodialysis while about 8% of patients receive peritoneal dialysis.4-7 Life of patients with chronic kidney disease becomes reorganized and adapted to changes resulting from the nature of the disease and the methods of its treatment About this journal Peritoneal Dialysis International (PDI) is an international publication dedicated to peritoneal dialysis.

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis induces the inflammatory response within the peritoneal cavity, which contributes to the progressive damage of the peritoneum. Due to close contact of the peritoneal cavity and the intestines, there is the possibility that the visceral disorders can affect the intraperitoneal inflammation during peritoneal dialysis Tidal peritoneal dialysis (TPD) has been introduced to optimize adequacy of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Early studies reported similar or even better small solute clearances with TPD than those achieved with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis or continuous cyclic peritoneal dialysis. However, in many studies treatment volumes were much higher during TPD compared with other PD modalities Approach to fluid management in peritoneal dialysis: A practical algorithm. Cardiovascular disease remains the bane of patients requiring renal replacement therapy. A major element in this grave morbidity profile is the cumulative cardiovascular burden incurred during the long history of chronic kidney disease (CKD)
In one study, Prevalence and causes of cough in chronic dialysis patients: a comparison between hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients. a persistent cough for at least 4 weeks was reported in 22% of PD patients and was significantly more frequent than among hemodialysis patients (7% in the same study) Peritoneal dialysis has now become an established form of renal replacement therapy; nearly half the patients on dialysis in the UK are treated in this way. Survival of patients is now equal to that with haemodialysis. However, long-term peritoneal dialysis (>8 years) is limited to a small percentage of patients because of dropout to haemodialysis for inherent complications of peritoneal. Combined therapy with peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) represents a treatment option for PD patients who cannot maintain adequate solute and fluid removal. It has rapidly gained popularity in Japan, and 15 years of accumulated experiences is available.

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a procedure that can be used by people whose kidneys are no longer working effectively. It does not cure or treat the underlying kidney disease. It is intended to replace as many functions of the failing kidneys as possible. The procedure is performed at home and primarily works to remove excess fluid and waste. Peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) are complementary rather than competitive dialysis therapies. PD has benefits as an initial modality due to its association with improved survival during the first 2-3 years , lower cost, and greater self-reported quality of life .Accordingly, a policy of integrated dialysis care with PD first and then HD has been established  World Kidney Day 2021, peritoneal dialysis: The process requires the patient to let the dialysate sit in the belly for sometime as it cleans the blood.

11 References; 242 Citing Articles; Letters Related Articles; Abstract Background. In some parts of the world, peritoneal dialysis is widely used for renal replacement in acute renal failure Peritoneal Dialysis. Peritoneal dialysis, or PD, is a daily treatment. PD is a procedure that removes wastes, chemicals and extra fluid from your body. This type of dialysis uses the thin, natural lining of your abdomen to filter your blood. The lining is called the peritoneal membrane. The peritoneal membrane surrounds the abdominal cavity. A surgery is involved in peritoneal dialysis to implant a peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter in the abdomen. A PD catheter is an artificial tube which facilitates performance of peritoneal dialysis. The abdomen is lined by a membrane called the peritoneum and the catheter is placed within the cavity formed by the peritoneum without harming other. Pleural effusions are frequently seen in patients on dialysis. A pleuroperitoneal leak or communication is a rare but important cause of pleural effusion in patients on peritoneal dialysis. This diagnosis can be made with a combination of biochemical tests and radiological modalities, in the absence of a gold standard diagnostic test. In addition to thoracocentesis, treatment often involves. Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a well-established modality of renal replacement therapy for patients with end-stage renal disease. The utilization and popularization of PD are rapidly growing, particularly in developing countries, where the number of patients receiving PD has increased more than 2-fold during the last decade .Although technical improvements and innovations of PD-related.

Peritoneal dialysis-(PD) related hydrothorax was first reported in 1967 by Edward and Unger .The prevalence of hydrothorax varies, ranging from 1.6%  to 6% of adult PD patients .Transudative pleural effusion develops, more commonly involving the right side, and usually occurs immediately after starting PD or a few days later .The patients may remain asymptomatic or have sudden dyspnea. A human peritoneal mesothelial cell line (HMrSV5) was stimulated with glucose-based and icodextrin-based peritoneal dialysis fluids. Cell viability was assessed using MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazolyl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium bromide]. TLR2/TLR4 expression was determined by real-time PCR, Western blotting, and an immunofluorescence assay
Fungal peritonitis (FP) is a rare complication of peritoneal dialysis. We herein describe the second case in Asia of Histoplasma capsulatum peritonitis associated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). An 85-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who had been on CAPD for 3 years and who had a history of 3 prior episodes of peritonitis presented with intermittent. Dialysis is a procedure that cleanses and removes toxins from the blood. It filters out waste material, as well as excess salt and water, and helps control blood pressure. Normally, this cleansing would be a job for your kidneys. Dialysis becomes a necessity when kidney function has been severely compromised The biggest difference in hemodialysis vs peritoneal dialysis is that hemodialysis requires an artificial kidney machine to filter blood while peritoneal dialysis does not. Rather than using a machine, peritoneal dialysis uses the lining on the inside of the belly as a natural filter for blood. During peritoneal dialysis, the dialysate flows. . Vitamin D (Vit-D) deficiency is common in CKD and peritoneal dialysis patients [5,6,7]
Catheter erosion into the small bowel is an uncommonly reported complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). This can result in peritonitis, sepsis, fistula formation, and mortality. We report a 29-year-old female with end-stage renal disease presenting with nausea, profuse diarrhea immediately after dialysate instillation, change in color and odor of the dialysis output. Peritoneal dialysis is a suitable option for patients who find hemodialysis too exhausting, such as elderly people, infants, and children. It can be done while traveling, so it is more convenient. Purpose Cardiovascular disease is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in dialysis patients. With the increasing prevalence of dialysis patients, there is a need to systematically identify the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients. Methods A meta-analysis was conducted in reference to the MOOSE and PRISMA guidelines. Database searches.
. Regardless of the dialysis modality, the preservation of residual kidney function (RKF) is an independent predictor of survival in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) G5D [1-6].Even in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, who have a low glomerular filtration ratio, the preservation of RKF is associated with the following beneficial effects: increased sodium removal. A peritoneal dialysis catheter is a flexible tube designed for peritoneal dialysis, the most well-known and widely-used being the Tenckhoff catheter.. History. In 1968 an American nephrologist Henry A Tenckhoff (d.2017) 2 introduced his eponymous peritoneal indwelling catheter 1..
