Abstract

For the most part, patients terminate CAPD or CCPD therapy for one of three reasons:
  1. 1

    Transfer to another type of dialysis.

     
  2. 2

    Transplantation.

     
  3. 3

    Death.

     
On rare occasions CAPD/CCPD may be terminated because of a return of kidney function or because a patient further therapy for end stage renal disease with no return of kidney function.
