Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Peritoneal dialysis (PD) represents a well established dialysis modality for pediatric patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) while waiting for renal transplantation. In children chronic PD remains the dialysis treatment modality most commonly prescribed throughout much of the world with PD preference over hemodialysis being most pronounced among infants and children 0–5 years of age [127, 201, 289, 280].
