Abstract

Although peritoneal dialysis for the treatment of renal failure became a reality earlier in this century, the advent of the more efficient and convenient hemodialysis retarded the progress of peritoneal procedures. After a slow start, peritoneal dialysis now appears to be gaining acceptability. It is seen by Gutman1 as at least an equally satisfactory alternative to hemodialysis, and by Fenton et al. as a major advance in promoting home dialysis.2
