The Japanese Experience with CAPD/CCPD in Children

  • Masataka Honda


Chronic peritoneal dialysis is well established as a form of renal replacement therapy for children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) awaiting kidney transplantation. Dramatic world-wide growth of chronic peritoneal dialysis has been attained during the past decade.1 To date, annual registry data for all ESRD children have been reported in the USA,2,3 Canada,3,4 Europe,5,6 including Italy,7 and Australia and New Zealand.8 In Japan, similar registry data on children undergoing chronic peritoneal dialysis have been compiled from the work of the Pediatric Peritoneal Dialysis Conference (Japan) since 1986.9
