BACKGROUND: Icodextrin is a solution of glucose polymers developed to provide sustained ultrafiltration over an extended dwell. Our aim was to determine whether or not fill volume with icodextrin contributes to the ability to achieve ultrafiltration in children. METHODS: The charts of all children on chronic peritoneal dialysis between January 2000 and July 2014 were screened for the use of an icodextrin day dwell. Data were extracted from the electronic chart and the HomeChoice™ Pro card and corrected for body surface area (BSA)...

Little information is available on adherence to a home automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) prescription for children with end-stage renal disease. We have therefore retrospectively reviewed HomeChoice PRO Card data from patients <21 years of age who received home APD. Adherence was characterized as occurring ≥ 95%, 90-94%, or <90% of time by dividing the frequency of each of four measured prescription variables (sessions/month, duration of each session, number of cycles/session, volume of dialysate/session) by the prescribed frequency and multiplying by 100...

Noncompliance (NC) with the dialysis prescription has been described as a common problem in dialysis patients. In previous studies, NC in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients has been assessed by obtaining patient or family histories, using questionnaires, and making home visits. With the use of the HomeChoice Pro Chip Card (PCC: Baxter Healthcare Corporation, Deerfield, IL, U.S.A.), the dialysis staff can monitor the total volume of dialysate used, the frequency of exchanges, and the duration of dialysis in patients maintained on automated peritoneal dialysis (APD)...

Since December 2000, we have proposed incremental dialysis to our patients with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 8-9 mL/min/1.73 m2. The incremental dialysis uses automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) 3-4 days per week ["low frequency APD" (LF-APD)], with or without a full abdomen during the period between the nighttime sessions. From December 1, 2000, to September 30, 2001, LF-APD was selected by 5 patients (2 men, 3 women). Of the 5 patients, 4 worked (age: 53 +/- 12 years; range: 40-69 years), and 1 (age: 78 years) needed assistance from a partner who was available only on certain days of the week...

In peritoneal dialysis (PD), compliance with the dialytic prescription is an important element in achieving adequate dialysis. Using the questionnaire or inventory method, a rate of noncompliance between 10% and 20% has been reported for automated peritoneal dialysis (APD). The recent introduction of APD equipment capable of recording dialytic treatments (DTs) means that compliance can be assessed more precisely. In the present study, the PDLink software program (Baxter Healthcare Corporation, Deerfield, IL, U...
