Currently, 15% of women in fertility age are infertile and the frequency is increasing. Among the various causes of infertility, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has been shown to decrease the frequency of pregnancies compared with normal females. However, dialysis of patients with ESRD increases the likelihood of pregnancy.Herein, we report successful pregnancy and delivery after peritoneal dialysis in a patient who was misdiagnosed as primary infertility.

Pregnancy in patients with end-stage renal disease is rare, with a paucity of management guidelines in the literature. Various hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) protocols have been used t...
Hemoperitoneum is a well-recognized complication in female peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients of childbearing age. Bloody effluent is commonly of minor nature, presenting during menstruation or midcycl...
The adoption of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis guideline of using mupirocin ointment has been limited by fear of developing mupirocin-resistant organisms. We performed a surveillanc...
Peritoneal dialysis has been used in the treatment of end-stage renal disease for a long time. The development of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) has achieved an acceptable device of ...
Little is known about the prevalence of functional impairment in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, its variation by country, and its association with mortality or transfer to hemodialysis.
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficiency of an adapted and "alternate" peritoneal dialysis scheme in terms of sodium extraction and purification compared to an adapted conven...
This study aims to use modified peritoneal dialysis prescriptions to achieve adequate clearance and volume removal while decreasing the number of exchanges or time spent on dialysis, evalu...
A Feasibility Study of Peritoneal Dialysis With CLS PD, Which Removes Toxins and Maintains a Stable Ultrafiltration by Continuously Regenerating a Recirculating Intraperitoneal Fluid, in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease, ESRD, With PD Therapy.
The study is a proof-of-concept of peritoneal dialysis with the Carry Life System for Peritoneal Dialysis (CLS PD). The extra-corporeally absorption of uremic toxins and certain ions from ...
This is a double blind randomized controlled study to evaluate the effect of aldactone on peritoneal fibrosis on incident peritoneal dialysis patients. The study would include a total of 4...
Peritoneal fibrosis is one of the major causes of technical failure in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) for long period of time. Although the exact mechanisms of peritoneal damage duri...
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
