Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis is established as a first-line standard renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease. However, the development of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis has been a critical complication among long-term peritoneal dialysis patients. During the past decade, multidisciplinary approaches have been used to suppress encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis. The present article reviews the historical and present status of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis in Japan.
