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.

We report a continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) patient who presented initially disseminated listeriosis with peritonitis. He was successfully treated with intraperitoneal and intravenous ampicillin but died unfortunately from a cardiorespiratory arrest due to food inhalation. It is the 20th case of such peritonitis mentioned among PD patients and the first reported in Belgium. This case illustrates the importance of a systematic approach to get quick diagnosis and effective antibiotic readjustment. Empiric therapy is not effective on Listeria which is naturally resistant to cephalosporins and poorly sensitive to...

Background: It remains controversial to claim blood pressure (BP) as a leading risk factor for high risk of death in peritoneal dialysis patients, and less is known about the relationship between BP and mortality in Chinese peritoneal dialysis patients. Methods: From Zhejiang Renal Data System in China, we collected data on patients treated and followed up at 98 peritoneal dialysis centres from 2008 to 2016. The associations of BP parameters [SBP, DBP, mean arterial pressure (MAP) and pulse pressure (PP)] with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality were examined. We fitted Cox models for mortality with penalized splin...

Conclusion: The association of BP with mortality was modified by serum sodium levels in PD patients. Further studies are needed to evaluate whether individualized BP control based on serum sodium levels contributes to improve patient outcomes.Kidney Blood Press Res

This study was designed as a pilot study to see whether electronic patient-reported outcome measures using computer adaptive technology (CAT) could be successfully implemented in clinics caring for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The results demonstrate the feasibility of using CAT on an iPad to assess the symptom burden and health-related quality of life of both PD and CKD patients.

Conclusion: Peritoneal UF is a treatment method that maintains renal function and electrolyte balance, improves cardiac function, and reduces hospitalizations in CRS patients. We observed that this treatment significantly increased functional capacity and quality of life and significantly reduced hospital admissions.Cardiorenal Med

ConclusionTreatment with CERA prior to and during the peritoneal dialysis initiation achieved fairly good anemia management in patients with and without diabetes. The CERA dosage could be reduced in patients without diabetes after dialysis initiation.

In December 2019, cases of acute respiratory illness of unknown origin were reported in Wuhan, China. The disease is caused by “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2”. After identifying severe lung damage, injury to other organs, such as the kidney, has been identified. Peritoneal dialysis is a renal replacement therapy (RRT) and is at least as effective as other extracorporeal therapy options, with significan t cost-effective advantages. However, this strategy is rarely used for the management of acute kidney injury in severe lung disease. In this review, we explore PD as an RRT strategy that may be ...
