Chart showing Relative Risk of Death on PD versus HD

Mortality rates are significantly higher on HD than on PD through the first two years1

During year 1 patients have between 17-44% lower death rate on PD vs HD1 

Meta-analysis of 811,319 patients from 18 countries: those who start dialysis with PD have an  early survival benefit vs their counterparts who start with HD1

USRDS data shows consistently lower mortality risk for PD compared to HD for more than a decade2
