TY - JOUR. T1 - Is retroperitoneoscopy the gold standard for endoscopic nephrectomy in children on peritoneal dialysis?. AU - Szymanski, Konrad. AU - Bitzan, Martin. AU - Capolicchio, John Paul. PY - 2010/10. Y1 - 2010/10. N2 - Purpose: The literature on minimally invasive nephrectomy in adults and children on peritoneal dialysis is sparse. Case reports suggest that the transperitoneal approach is effective. We present our experience with retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy in children on peritoneal dialysis. Materials and Methods: At 11 consecutive retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomies a total of 14 kidneys were removed from 10 children with a mean age of 12 years. We used a 3-port lateral retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy technique with active trainee participation. Preoperative and postoperative biochemistry results within 3 months of surgery were compared with the Wilcoxon signed rank test. Results: Three bilateral synchronous, 1 bilateral staged and 6 unilateral retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomies ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Assessment and monitoring of nutrition status in pediatric peritoneal dialysis patients. AU - Edefonti, Alberto. AU - Mastrangelo, Antonio. AU - Paglialonga, Fabio. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - Abnormalities of nutrition status are a common problem in children on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and a source of significant morbidity and mortality. The state of decreased body protein mass and fuel reserves (body protein and fat mass) common in PD patients is now better known as protein- energy wasting (PEW). Protein-energy wasting is a slow, progressive process in chronic kidney disease. The correct approach to this problem includes measurement of early, intermediate, and late markers of PEW, and consideration of the risk factors specific to the patient and to PD. The earliest markers of PEW are associated with some symptoms observed clinically: a decrease in dietary intake and an increase in inflammatory markers. The second stage in the development of PEW (patients with established PEW) is ...
The one-year mortality rate is consistently higher among PD patients than HD patients in Singapore; this may be due to the higher prevalence of significant comorbidities (e.g. ischaemic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease and peripheral vascular disease) among incident PD patients.(7) Studies have found that abnormal CKD-MBD parameters can affect all-cause mortality among patients on dialysis.(3-5,14,15) CKD-MBD is characterised by either one or a combination of the following items: (a) abnormalities in serum calcium, phosphorus or i-PTH levels, or vitamin D metabolism; (b) abnormalities in bone turnover, mineralisation, volume, linear growth or strength; and (c) the presence of vascular or other soft-tissue calcifications.(12) The complex relationship between abnormal CKD-MBD parameters and adverse clinical outcomes among incident PD patients has not been explored. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the prevalence of CKD-MBD among incident PD patients and examine the ...
Cardiovascular disease is the commonest cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic dialysis patients, including those treated with CAPD (Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis) [1]. Uncontrolled arterial hypertension in ESRF leads to progression of LVH, which is a strong predictor for coronary events, CHF and mortality [2]. Fluid overload is a major factor in the pathogenesis of arterial hypertension in CAPD patients [3]. Therefore, interventions to optimize volume status, and hence blood pressure, are considered central in the management of such patients. Such therapies include restricting dietary sodium and water intake, use of diuretics in patients with residual renal function and optimization of peritoneal ultrafiltration with sodium and water removal [1]. As shown in the EAPOS Study, peritoneal ultrafiltration was important predictor of mortality [4].. Peritoneal fluid and salt removal can be increased by using a more hypertonic dialysis fluid using glucose as osmotic agent. Consistent ...
Peritoneal dialysis was one of therapies for uremia patient. However, peritoneal dialysis related peritonitis was a major complication for these patients. Severe and prolong peritonitis may led to membrane failure and drop out of peritoneal dialysis. Among the pathogens, G(+) bacteria came from skin surface and G(-) bacteria came from gastrointestinal tract. The later might be related to the pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract, and led to peritonitis if constipation or diarrhea developed. In addition, intestinal pathogens may be related to chronic inflammation in uremia patients. There was a MIA syndrome (malnutrition, inflammation and atherosclerosis) noted before, and chronic inflammation may be related to malnutrition. Today, we know that nutrition status and inflammation marker (CRP) may be associated with patients outcome. Many gastrointestinal syndromes such as constipation suffer our patients. The dialysate in the abdominal cavity may further exacerbate the appetite. The probiotics ...
In this type of dialysis, a special solution is run through a tube into the peritoneum, a thin tissue that lines the cavity of the abdomen. The bodys waste products are removed through the tube. There are three types of peritoneal dialysis. Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), the most common type, needs no machine and can be done at home. Continuous cyclic peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) uses a machine and is usually performed at night when the person is sleeping. Intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD) uses the same type of machine as CCPD, but is usually done in the hospital because treatment takes longer. Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis may be used to treat people with diabetes who have kidney failure ...

Background. Measuring glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is an important assessment in peritoneal dialysis patients. In clinical practice, it is commonly measured by calculating the mean of the urinary clearance of urea and creatinine (GFRUrCl) but this process is time consuming and unreliable. We wished to compare several estimates of GFR including residual GFR estimated from cystatin C (GFRCysC) using a published equation (Hoek), GFRUrCl and 51Cr-ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) clearance, in peritoneal dialysis patients.. Methods. GFRCysC, GFRUrCl and 51Cr-EDTA clearance were measured in 28 patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis in a single dialysis unit.. Results. GFRCysC was related to GFRUrCl (Spearmans rank correlation coefficient rs = 0.44; P = 0.0185) and to 51Cr-EDTA clearance (rs = 0.48; P = 0.0099). GFRCysC values were significantly (P = 0.0077) lower than 51Cr-EDTA clearance results (mean bias −19.7%). However, GFRCysC did not differ significantly (P , 0.05) from ...

AU - Kohaut, Edward. AU - Salusky, Isidro. AU - Schlichting, Linda. AU - Pu, Kewei. AU - Watkins, Sandra. PY - 1999/9. Y1 - 1999/9. N2 - Functional stability of the peritoneal membrane is necessary for maintenance of peritoneal dialysis (PD) as a therapeutic option. Few studies have investigated this issue in children. We evaluated the peritoneal membrane solute transport capacity longitudinally in 26 children (mean age 11.0 ± 5.5 years) receiving long-term PD. Each patient underwent a standardized peritoneal equilibration test on two occasions (mean interval between studies 19.8 ± 5.9 months) to determine solute dialysate to plasma (D/P) ratios, dialysate glucose to initial dialysate glucose (D/D0) ratios, and mass transfer area coefficients (MTAC). The correlation of transport capacity with peritonitis history was ...
It is now well appreciated that peritoneal dialysis patients have different peritoneal membrane transport characteristics. These differences are best classified and determined by use of the peritoneal equilibration test (PET). (See.) If the standard
Introduction. Hypervolemia is a "traditional" independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and death among end-stage renal disease patients. It is associated with ventricular hypertrophy,1 nutritional changes,2,3 and inflammation.4-6 Volume overload also promotes endothelial dysfunction7 and nightly non-dipping8 blood pressure in dialysis patients.. The importance of adequacy beyond small solute clearances in the overall patient survival was highlighted by peritoneal dialysis landmark studies such as CANUSA,9 ADEMEX,10 and NECOSAD.11. Residual renal function (RRF) plays a determinant role in the outcome of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients.11,12 Daily urine output over 250ml represents a 34% increase in survival benefit in peritoneal dialysis patients.9 A reduction in the risk of death,13 volume overload, and left ventricular dysfunction,14 has been observed with increased fluid removal in PD, alongside with sodium restriction. Nevertheless, the ADEMEX study failed to demonstrate mortality ...

S CROCKER1. 1John Hunter Hospital, Newcastle, New South Wales. Background: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) continues to remain a viable dialysis modality with at least 60-90% of home-based patients performing PD across Australia. PD allows patients to maintain greater independence and a more normal lifestyle to participate in usual activities of daily living. Complications of peritonitis, catheter migration and exit site infections are not uncommon and often lead to membrane failure.. Case Report: A 49 year-old lady on peritoneal dialysis presented to hospital with diffuse abdominal pain, fevers and cloudy dialysate. Her underlying renal disease was diabetic nephropathy and the peritoneal dialysis catheter had been laparoscopically inserted 6 months prior to this presentation. Dialysis had been complicated by an episode of uncomplicated Staphylococcus epidermidis peritonitis and a pleural leak. Initial treatment in hospital began with empiric intra-peritoneal antibiotics after a PD fluid sample ...
Abstract: Although there are studies assessing the effects of interventions on the knee strength of patients undergoing dialysis, there are no previous studies investigating the test-retest reliability of isokinetic measures in people undergoing peritoneal dialysis. The objective of this study was to determine the relative and absolute reliability of peak torque and work measurements for isokinetic concentric knee and elbow extension and flexion in peritoneal dialysis patients. Thirty-one patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (19 males) participated in the current study. All isokinetic tests were performed using a Biodex System 3. Participants performed three concentric repetitions of each test (flexion or extension) with the dominant limb (knee and elbow) at 60◦/s. Peak torque (Nm) and work (J) were extracted. The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), standard error of measurement (SEM), and smallest real difference (SRD) were calculated. The results showed that all knee peak torque and ...

To the editor: According to the recent paper of Dr. Cattran and colleagues (1), peritoneal dialysis leads to more severe and sustained hypertriglyceridemia than hemodialysis. Since higher values of triglycerides may further accelerate cardiovascular disease (2), they are justifiably concerned about the "increasing number of children and adults maintained on chronic peritoneal dialysis.". We were unable, however, to confirm their findings. We have recently examined the fasting serum triglyceride levels in a group of 21 patients on chronic peritoneal dialysis for 6 to 65 months (average, 25.6 months) and 15 patients on chronic hemodialysis for 1 to 73 months (average, ...

Recently, technological developments in hemodialysis techniques and the continuous renal replacement therapies have limited the indications for peritoneal dialysis (PD) in critically ill patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). However, PD remains an effective therapy that is easily and simply instituted, especially for infants (weighing less than 2500 g) and children with AKI. Highly trained personnel, expensive and complex apparatus, and systemic anticoagulation, vascular access were not needed, and so the procedure could be simply and quickly initiated. Peritoneal access should be implanted surgically by surgeon (laparascopic technique if possible) or the bedside-placed acute catheter. We can use continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). In practice APD can be performed successfully in infants only when the fill volume is over 100-150 ml. If an infant needs acute dialysis it is important to use low fill volumes (200 ml/m2 or 10 ml/kg) and ...
The Providence Health Care Renal Program supports patients to conduct peritoneal dialysis in their own home. The Peritoneal Dialysis program team includes nurses, nephrologists, patient educators, dietitians, social workers, pharmacists and physiotherapists.. Patients can learn to perform peritoneal dialysis independently. It generally takes one to two weeks of one-on-one training using a variety of learning strategies for a patient and/or caregiver to become confident performing peritoneal dialysis on their own. Nursing support is available by phone for urgent troubleshooting of problems. Equipment and dialysis supplies are provided and delivered to the patients home. Peritoneal dialysis patients attend clinic visits every one to three months.. ...
Peritoneal dialysis confers therapeutic advantages in patients with renal insufficiency and has proven beneficial in other indications, such as removal of excess metabolites or overdosed drugs. However, it is used in only about 10% of the dialyzed population worldwide, partly owing to the lower clearance rate compared with hemodialysis. We have developed a dialysis medium based on liposomes with a transmembrane pH gradient (basic or acidic aqueous core) that could improve the efficacy of peritoneal dialysis, specifically for the removal of excess metabolites or overdosed drugs. These scavenging vesicles are able to extract ionizable drugs and toxic metabolites into the peritoneal space and can be easily withdrawn from the body at the end of dialysis. This approach was used to successfully remove ammonia from rats with a greater extraction efficiency than traditional peritoneal dialysis, and may therefore prove useful in the treatment of severe hyperammonemia. Liposomal dialysis was also used to ...
My interest in peritoneal dialysis started with my first job when I was taught how to put in PD catheters! During a subsequent fellowship at Yale, I developed a rat model of PD. Since then my research has been entirely clinical. I was in charge of the PD unit at Charing Cross hospital for many years, and am now the consultant in charge of the PD unit at the West London Renal and Transplant Centre. I have been on the organising faculty of the PD Academy since it started and am one of the authors of the Oxford Handbook of Dialysis. My prinicipal research interests are peritoneal dialysis and dialysis for the elderly. I was a principal investigator for the European APD Outcome Study (EAPOS) and the North Thames Dialysis Study for the elderly. I am now running BOLDE - Broadening Outcomes for Longterm Dialyis in the Elderly.. My qualifications are MA(Oxon), DM, FRCP.. ...
The invention aims to provide a compact peritoneal dialysis apparatus using a disposable cassette integrally formed with a diaphragm and heating portion, in which a flow path can be switched quietly and a heating ability is high. By using a disposable cassette (8) integrally formed with a diaphragm, heating portion, and flow path switching portion, a predetermined amount of dialysis fluid is heated to a predetermined temperature with the heating portion. Clamps (111-118) for opening/closing a flow path switching portion are provided in order to form flow paths through which the heated peritoneal dialysis fluid is distributed into the peritoneal cavity of a patient almost continuously and is sucked and drained from the peritoneal cavity of the patient. The invention also aims to provide a peritoneal dialysis apparatus with which automatic dialysis treatment can be performed by the patient himself and the operation procedures of which are very clear and easy to understand, so treatment can be performed
Hyaluronan (HA) is a ubiquitous extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan composed of repeated disaccharide units of alternating D-glucuronic acid and D-N-acetylglucosamine residues linked via alternating β-1,4 and β-1,3 glycosidic bonds. HA is synthesized in humans by HA synthase (HAS) enzymes 1, 2, and 3, which are encoded by the corresponding HAS genes. Previous in vitro studies have shown characteristic changes in HAS expression and increased HA synthesis in response to wounding and proinflammatory cytokines in human peritoneal mesothelial cells. In addition, in vivo models and human peritoneal biopsy samples have provided evidence of changes in HA metabolism in the fibrosis that at present accompanies peritoneal dialysis treatment. This review discusses these published observations and how they might contribute to improvement in peritoneal dialysis.. ...

Side Effects of Peritoneal Dialysis: 1, infection: A person undergoing dialysis is at risk of getting an infection from bacteria on the outside of the body. Great care must be taken during the process of filling, dwelling and draining dialysis solution to lower this risk. Also, where there is frequent handling of the catheter, risk of infection is higher. The most common type of infection is peritonitis, where the peritoneum (where the catheter is placed in the abdomen) gets infected. Another common problem is the development of skin infections around the catheter insertion site. 2, hernias: In peritoneal dialysis, the insertion of the catheter weakens the muscles of the abdominal wall. Pressure produced by the dialysis solution pushing against the already weakened muscles can lead to a tear, and in this way result in a hernia. 3, nutrition: Some peritoneal dialysis patients find it difficult to eat, as the dialysis solution in their stomach area makes them feel full. Lesser food intake often ...

BACKGROUND: Total body water (V) is an imprecise metric for normalization of dialytic urea clearance (Kt). This poses a risk of early mortality/technique failure (TF). We examined differences in the distribution of peritoneal Kt/V when V was calculated with actual weight (AW), ideal weight (IW), and adjusted weight (ADW). We also examined the associations of these Kt/V measurements, Kt/body surface area (BSA), and non-normalized Kt with mortality and TF. ♦ METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of 534 incident peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients from the Dialysis Morbidity and Mortality Study Wave 2 linked with United States Renal Data System through 2010. Using Cox-proportional hazard models, we examined the relationship of several normalization strategies for peritoneal urea clearance, including Kt/VAW, Kt/VIW, Kt/VADW, Kt/BSA, and non-normalized Kt, with the outcomes of mortality and TF. Harrells c-statistics were used to assess the relative predictive ability of clearance metrics for ...
