Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) guidelines for Japan were first published by the Japanese Society for Dialysis Treatment in 2009. They presented a concrete frame of PD practiced in Japan and stressed the timing of PD introduction as well as the clinical point of transfer to other modalities. The outlines of the guidelines and the issues to be addressed in the future are reviewed.
