Abstract

The guidelines for peritoneal dialysis (PD) of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Treatment were prepared at 2009. Upon presenting a concrete frame of PD practiced in Japan, it aims to promote PD as a standardized therapy in Japan. Notably, the guidelines recommended combination therapy of PD and hemodialysis as a part of integrated renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease, as well as timely PD withdrawal by peritoneal degeneration in order to prevent progression of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis.
