BACKGROUND: Educational interventions are increasingly used to promote peritoneal dialysis (PD), the most common form of home therapy for end-stage renal disease. A systematic review of the evidence in support of dialysis modality education is needed to inform the design of patient-targeted interventions to increase selection of PD. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to characterize the relationship between patient-targeted educational interventions and choosing and receiving PD...

UNLABELLED:BACKGROUND: Previous studies have reported significant variation in peritonitis rates across dialysis centers. Limited evidence is available to explain this variability. The aim of this study was to assess center-level predictors of peritonitis and their relationship with peritonitis rate variations. ♦ METHODS: All incident peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients treated in Australia between October 2003 and December 2013 were included...

BACKGROUND: Intensive hemodialysis (HD) is characterized by increased frequency and/or session length compared to conventional HD. Previous analyses from Australia and New Zealand did not suggest benefit with intensive HD, although recent research suggests that relationships have changed. We present updated analyses. STUDY DESIGN: Observational cohort study using marginal structural modeling to adjust for changes in renal replacement modality and time-varying medical comorbid conditions...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) solutions with reduced sodium content may have advantages for hypertensive patients; however, they have lower osmolarity and solvent drag, so the achieved Kt/Vurea may be lower. Furthermore, the increased transperitoneal membrane sodium gradient can influence sodium balance with consequences for blood pressure (BP) control. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical trial to prove the noninferiority of total weekly Kt/Vurea with low-sodium versus standard-sodium PD solution, with the lower confidence limit above the clinically accepted difference of -0...

Prior small studies have shown multiple benefits of frequent nocturnal hemodialysis compared to conventional three times per week treatments. To study this further, we randomized 87 patients to three times per week conventional hemodialysis or to nocturnal hemodialysis six times per week, all with single-use high-flux dialyzers. The 45 patients in the frequent nocturnal arm had a 1.82-fold higher mean weekly stdKt/V(urea), a 1.74-fold higher average number of treatments per week, and a 2.45-fold higher average weekly treatment time than the 42 patients in the conventional arm...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: We assessed perceived barriers and incentives to home hemodialysis and evaluated potential correlates with the duration of home hemodialysis training. DESIGN, SETTINGS, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Surveys were sent to the principal investigator and study coordinator for each clinical center in the Frequent Hemodialysis Network Nocturnal Trial. Baseline data were obtained on medical comorbidities, cognitive and physical functioning, sessions required for home hemodialysis training, and costs of home renovations...
