Prescribing chronic PD therapy is part science and part art. The science of the prescription is in the understanding of the patient’s membrane transport status, ultrafiltration and adequacy requirements, and residual kidney function. The art of a PD prescription is in designing a regimen that supports long-term therapy maintenance. This presentation will review salient concepts to achieving an appropriate prescription and ensure long-term success on PD

Successful peritoneal dialysis therapy depends upon the presence of a functional and durable long-term access to the peritoneal cavity. Current PD catheters can be found in a range of materials, configurations, lengths and are placed by a variety of procedures. This presentation will review PD catheters and best demonstrated placement techniques.

Image guided percutaneous placement of peritoneal catheters is a safe, minimally invasive, and effective alternative to blind or open surgical placement. This presentation details the percutaneous approach to placing peritoneal catheters using sonographic and fluoroscopic guidance. More than 50 photos of this placement technique are highlighted and will be reviewed in this session.

Incremental PD: Could Less Initial Dialysis Mean More For Patient Outcomes?

Date: Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Due to consistent global survival evidence and enhanced financial incentives, PD has grown at a faster rate than the number of patients being treated for kidney failure over the past decade. In the wake of AAKHI and its mandatory ETC model, the US is expecting a further boost in PD growth, and providers want to ensure patients continue to receive high quality care at home. The latest ISPD guidelines and KDOQI commentary support Incremental PD as part of a person-centered, goal-directed care model, tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
