CONCLUSIONS: Compared with younger patients, elderly PD patients with peritonitis achieved similar medical cure rates, a lower catheter removal rate, and comparable rates of HD transfer, relapse, hospitalization, and death. Elderly PD patients experiencing peritonitis were less likely to present with fever or cloudy dialysate. PMID: 30257997 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Taki Y, Sakurada T, Koitabashi K, Imai N, Shibagaki Y Abstract Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is recognized as an excellent method of dialysis because the therapy is gentle, continuous, and cost-effective. However, a large number of patients must unfortunately transfer from PD to hemodialysis because of peritonitis or fluid overload in the early phase after PD initiation. In the present study, we reviewed clinical indicators before PD initiation to try to identify predictive factors for early withdrawal from PD.For this retrospective cohort study at two hospitals between March 2003 and October 2016, we defined w...

Abstract Our objective is to study the outcomes and complications of peritoneal dialysis (PD) including comparison of self-care PD with home-care assisted PD during a five-year period. A retrospective study of PD data at King Saud University-affiliated hospital in Riyadh from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2013. One hundred and eleven patients were included (female 55%). The average age was 47.4 (1-83) years. Twenty-one (18.91%) patients were on continuous ambulatory PD and 90 (81.08%) on automated PD. The mean time on PD was 23.5 (3-60) months. At the end of five years, 47 (42.34%) patients were continuing on P...

Authors: Franco MRG, Colugnati FAB, Qureshi AR, Divino-Filho JC, Fernandes NMDS Abstract INTRODUCTION: Data on impact of high body mass index (BMI) on mortality of patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD), especially among elderly, are inconsistent. Objective: To evaluate impact of BMI on cohort of incident elderly PD patients over time. METHODS: Prospective multicenter cohort study (December / 2004-October/2007) with 674 patients. Socio-demographic and clinical data evaluated with patients followed until death, transfer to hemodialysis (HD), recovery of renal function, loss of follow-up or transplant. Patients wer...

Authors: Refaat H, Sany D, Mohab A, Ezzat H Abstract Patients undergoing dialysis are at high risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Mortality differences between peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD) are widely debated. The question of whether dialysis modality affects the risk for CVD remains to be addressed.In the present study, we evaluated the influence of hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) on survival and the risk of developing de novo CVD. Our observational prospective study enrolled 157 end-stage renal disease patients on HD or PD for 12 months. Patients with a history of malignancy, ch...
