  1. PD: Better Quality of Life than In-Center HD for 2 Years

    Among 989 patients starting PD or in-center HD, health-related quality of life (HRQOL) was measured at 3, 12, and 24 months after dialysis start. PD patients scored higher all along on several key dimensions than HD patients—and this effect lasted up to 2 years. Both PD and HD patients had about the same amount of decline in HRQOL over 2 years.

    A retrospective study compared the first 30-day outcomes and survival trends of 80 urgent start dialysis patients, 50 of whom (62.5%) did PD. Compared to those who started standard in-center HD, the dialysis-related complications were significantly lower for those on PD, and PD survival was higher as well. Read the abstract.
