This book reviews important literature to provide insight into the
mechanisms and technical aspects of peritoneal dialysis (PD). PD is
a harshly under-utilised modality of renal replacement. Continuous
PD can enjoy weekly solute clearances approaching those with
hemodialysis. Recent clinical research data indicates at least an
initial survival advantage as well as better preservation of
residual renal function of patients started on PD as compared to
those initiated on hemodialysis. Recent advances in knowledge of
mechanisms and new technological advances including development of
advanced dialysis solutions have potential to improvise PD to
extend its initial survival advantage to long-term treatment.
