peritoneal dialysis
Peritoneal dialysis
  • CCPD>CAPD
  • Advantages
    • nocturnal therapy (CCPD)
    • relative preservation of daily routine
    • easy(ish) to learn
  • Disadvantages
    • less efficient than HD
    • requires strict attention to technique
    • pressure on carers
    • infections are (relatively) common
    • not possible in some patients
haemodialysis
Haemodialysis
  • Hospital HD, home HD
  • Advantages
    • less pressure on carers
    • efficient, requires less time
    • frequent hospital reviews
  • Disadvantages
    • disruptive of routine
    • access problems
    • hospital dependant
    • requires special equipment,fluids
kidney transplantation
Kidney transplantation
  • Cadavaric, live donor
  • Before/after dialysis
  • Advantages
    • restores normal renal functions
    • improved growth, development, educational progress
  • Disadvantages
    • lifelong immunosuppression (infections, neoplasia)
    • sensitisation
    • graft loss

Pre-emptive renal transplantation

transplantation prior to dialysis

LRD or CAD kidneys

Advantages

avoids stress of dialysis

better for growth and development

Disadvantages

timing is difficult for CAD

risk of transplanting unnecessarily

transplantation
Transplantation
  • Developments
    • better immunosuppressive regimens
      • less nephrotoxic immunosuppressive drugs
      • less steroids
      • reduced incidence of rejection
      • improved graft survival
    • acceptance of pre-emptive grafting
    • improved bladder management
    • ABO and HLA incompatible grafts
