Growing home dialysis: The Ontario Renal Network Home Dialysis Initiative 2012-2019
Perit Dial Int. 2021 May 10:8968608211012805. doi: 10.1177/08968608211012805. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Ontario Renal Network (ORN), a provincial government agency in Ontario, Canada, launched an initiative in 2012 to increase home dialysis use province-wide. The initiative included a new modality-based funding formula, a standard mandatory informatics system, targets for prevalent home dialysis rates, the development of a 'network' of renal programmes with commitment to home dialysis and a culture of accountability with frequent meetings between ORN and each renal programme leadership to review their results. It a...

Optimization of bimodal automated peritoneal dialysis prescription using the three-pore model
CONCLUSION: These theoretical results imply substantial improvements in glucose absorption using optimized APD regimens while achieving similar water and solute removal as non-optimized APD regimens. While the current results are based on a well-established theoretical model for peritoneal dialysis, experimental and clinical studies need to be performed to validate the current findings.PMID:33910417 | DOI:10.1177/08968608211010055 (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)

Outcome measures for technique survival reported in peritoneal dialysis: A systematic review
CONCLUSION: There is substantial heterogeneity in how PD technique survival is defined and measured, likely contributing to considerable variability in reported rates. Standardised measures for reporting technique survival in PD studies are required to improve comparability.PMID:33882725 | DOI:10.1177/0896860821989874 (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)

SGLT2 inhibition does not reduce glucose absorption during experimental peritoneal dialysis
CONCLUSION: We could not confirm recent findings that SGLT2 inhibition reduced glucose absorption and increased osmotic water transport during experimental PD.PMID:33845652 | DOI:10.1177/08968608211008095 (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)

A systematic review of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis rates over time from national or regional population-based registries and databases
This study summarizes PD peritonitis rates from available population-based national or regional registries around the world, examining trends over time. This is a systematic review of PD peritonitis rates in patients treated with PD for kidney failure, from census-based national or provincial/statewide/provider registries or databases. MEDLINE (via PubMed) was searched from inception to August 2020, and inquiries made to national registry personnel using the International Comparisons section of the 2018 United States Renal Data System Annual Data Report as a contact list. Quantitative synthesis was done using weighted rand...

Vascular endothelial growth factor-mediated peritoneal neoangiogenesis in peritoneal dialysis
Perit Dial Int. 2021 Apr 7:8968608211004683. doi: 10.1177/08968608211004683. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPeritoneal dialysis (PD) is an important renal replacement therapy for patients with end-stage renal diseases, which is limited by peritoneal neoangiogenesis leading to ultrafiltration failure (UFF). Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptors are key angiogenic factors involved in almost every step of peritoneal neoangiogenesis. Impaired mesothelial cells are the major sources of VEGF in the peritoneum. The expression of VEGF will be up-regulated in specific pathological conditions in PD patients, suc...

Peritoneal physicochemical transport mechanisms: Hypotheses, models and controversies
This study answers criticisms by Waniewski et al. of the recent paper by Wolf on peritoneal transport kinetic models. Their criticisms centre on the accuracy of the data used for model fits, the hypothesis presented, which involves changes in glucose membrane parameters at high peritoneal glucose concentration and on the necessary techniques required to achieve accurate model parameter estimation. In response, this article shows that (1) the mean values previously captured from graphical depictions of Heimburger et al. are not different than those captured from the recent Waniewski et al. graphs, (2) a much simpler hypothe...

Validity and reliability of high-resolution ultrasound imaging for the assessment of regional body composition in stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
CONCLUSIONS: Valid assessment of regional body composition can be achieved via high-resolution US in patients receiving CAPD. The validity and reliability of the US in repeated measures (in comparison to the gold standard MRI) warrant further investigation in the wider chronic kidney disease population.PMID:33783265 | DOI:10.1177/08968608211002384 (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)
