Peritoneal dialysis has its roots in the early civilizations, when the existence of the peritoneum was recognized.
The anatomy of peritoneum and physiology of peritoneal transport are described in these articles to help understand the basic principles of Peritoneal Dialysis (PD).
This section contains articles related to peritoneal transport including testing methods, transport status classification, and changes in peritoneal membrane function after PD exposure.
This section contains articles related to achieving peritoneal dialysis adequacy such as PD prescription, dose, volume, and monitoring PD patients.
Volume control and achieving adequate ultrafiltration in peritoneal dialysis are discussed in this section.
These articles will provide an overview of infectious and non-infectious complications of peritoneal dialysis.
This section will discuss peritoneal dialysis access including types of PD catheters, placement, pre, intra, and post-operative managements, and complications of PD catheter.
This article will discuss overall mortality trends and clinical factors that influence mortality in HD and PD patients.
