Indications, contraindications and complications of peritoneal dialysis in the critically ill



Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a safe, effective, low-cost intracorporeal renal replacement modality with some inherent advantages. The peritoneal membrane is a biocompatible, internally located dialyzer which limits ingress of bacteria and their products, removes uremic toxins, allows continuous, gentle 24-hour dialysis and ultrafiltration, while avoiding the use of anticoagulants [l, 2].
