Kidney Transplantation Renal Dialysis.

Renal Replacement Therapy

Renal Replacement Therapy

Renal Replacement Therapy  encompasses all life saving treatment options for advanced renal failure which are hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, hemofiltration, hemodiafiltration and renal transplantation.

Once it is determined that renal replacement therapy will be required, the patient (along with his physician) should consider the advantages and disadvantages of three types of therapy.

Renal replacement therapies are treatments for severe kidney failure (also called stage V chronic kidney disease or end stage renal disease). When the kidneys are no longer working effectively, waste products and fluid build up in the blood. Dialysis takes over the function of the failing kidneys to remove the fluid and waste products.

It is typically needed when about 90% or more of kidney function is lost.

Preparation for Hemodialysis


Mental Preparation for Hemodialysis should be made well in advance before its need arises.
Primary AV fistula is the preferred type of vascular access.

It requires a surgical procedure that creates a direct connection between an artery and a vein. During dialysis, two needles are inserted into the fistula vein. Blood flows out through one needle, circulates through the dialysis machine, purified and flown back through the other needle.One should get a fistula created usually two to four months before the expected start of life saving hemodialysis. This will save the patient from temporary catheters, which are more prone to cause infections, injuries and clotting.

Kidney Disease

Kidney Disease : When the kidneys stop working, renal failure occurs. If this renal failure continues (chronically), end-stage renal disease results, with accumulation of toxic waste products in the body. In this case, either dialysis or transplantation is required.

Dialysis

Dialysis replicates a normal kidney’s functions. This is used for the treatment of chronic kidney disease because kidney is incapable of performing all kinds of functions.

The choice between hemo or peritoneal dialysis is influenced by a number of considerations such as availability, convenience, underlying medical problems home situation and age. This choice is best made by discussing the risks and benefits of each type of dialysis with your concerned doctor and his support staff.

When to Start Dialysis?
It is recommended that dialysis begin well before kidneys disease has advanced to the point where life threatening complications affecting the brain, heart and lungs occur. If one starts dialysis very late, than the quality of life is not significantly improved even after receiving regular dialysis.

Emergency dialysis is usually given when
Blood tests reveal very high BUN/Serum Creatinine
However a patient is advised to go for early dialysis electively and not to wait for an emergency, as the emergency dialysis has much higher mortality and morbidity risks.

More common is the home CAPD (Chronic Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis)  in India.

A small plastic catheter is inserted in the patient's abdomen by a simple surgery. The patient with his attendants are taught how to instill dialysis fluid in his abdomen through this catheter and then drain the used fluid out four hours later. This process has to be done thrice a day with all due precautions.

The Advantage of this Therapy
