Renal Replacement Therapy

Kidney replacement therapies can be used to treat severely kidney-related kidney problems or chronic renal disease (also known as chronic Kidney Disease stage 5 end or Last-Stage Renal failure).It is usually necessary when around 90 percent or greater of renal function has been diminished.

Once it is confirmed that renal replacement therapy will be necessary, the patient and his doctor should discuss the benefits and disadvantages of the three types of renal failure therapy:

  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Hemodialysis
  • Renal Transplantation (living donor or organ donor, also known as cadaveric donors).

Note: A Renal Transplant may not be considered if the patient has Tuberculosis or a recent history of cancer, advanced heart, lung or liver disease and if the patient is a smoker, alcohol or drug dependant.
