Can ferric citrate lead to iron overload in peritoneal dialysis patients? 
.

We present a series of 3 PD patients who developed iron overload while receiving FC for management of hyperphosphatemia. These cases highlight the importance of close monitoring of iron studies and question whether a lower maximum dose of FC should be recommended in PD patients. Further studies are needed to assess the safety of the maximum approved dose of FC among PD patients.

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of ESI was 0.13 episodes per year. Poor competency of ES care, catheter mobilization, history of catheter-pulling injury, and mechanical stress by waist belt or the protective bag of PD on ES were risk factors for ESI. PMID: 32072873 [PubMed - in process]

Patients with end-stage renal disease may use peritoneal dialysis (PD) for convenience and flexibility. However, PD catheters may have associated adverse outcomes, including discomfort, inadequate dialysis, malfunction, and infection. Some of them may transition to Hemodialysis or possibly get a kidney transplant during their lifetime. Our study sought to determine the outcomes of patients who had PD catheters placed by Interventional radiologists over a 2-year period.

Percutaneous gastrostomy (PG) is routinely performed by interventional radiologists for nutrition or decompression. In some patients a transabdominal approach is unavailable or contraindicated due to surgically altered anatomy, large hiatal hernia, peritoneal dialysis, ascites, or bowel interposition. In 1998, Oishi et al described PTEG as an alternative method of parenteral access. In this largest domestic series, we present indications for PTEG, as well as failure and complication rates not previously described.

Authors: Marshall MR Abstract There are a number of misconceptions around the identified early survival benefit of peritoneal dialysis (PD) relative to hemodialysis (HD), including that such benefits "even out in the end" since the relative risk of death over time eventually encompasses 1.0 (or even an estimate that is unfavorable to PD); that the early benefit is, in fact, most likely due to unmeasured confounding; and such benefits are only due to the influence of central venous catheters and "crash starters" in the HD group. In fact, the early survival benefit results in a substantial gain of...

Authors: Lew SQ, Sikka N Abstract The 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act in the United States extended telehealth access to Medicare beneficiaries who receive home dialysis in which two of three monthly visits in a quarter may be performed by telehealth after three initial face-to-face monthly visits. The originating site (where the patient is located) can be a dialysis unit or the patient's home and without geographic restriction. Patient awareness and interest in this new telehealth benefit in urban patients has not been well characterized. Patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment located in an urban facilit...

CONCLUSION: Long-term survival following EPS managed conservatively with nutritional support is feasible, with the majority no longer requiring nutritional support and having a quality of life similar to other patients with ESKD. PMID: 32067553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Lam E, Lien YTK, Kraft WK, Piraino B, Vozmediano V, Schmidt S, Zhang J Abstract Intraperitoneal vancomycin is the first-line therapy in the management of peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related peritonitis. However, due to the paucity of data, vancomycin dosing for peritonitis in patients on automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) is empiric and based on clinical experience rather than evidence. Studies in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients have been used to provide guidelines for dosing and are often extrapolated for APD use, but it is unclear whether this is appropriate. This review summarize...
