Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In the present article, we review current knowledge of the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of peripheral vascular disease in patients with end-stage renal disease. The main focus is placed on diabetic patients receiving peritoneal dialysis, but studies on patients receiving hemodialysis are also reviewed, because most reports involve this patient group, and the number of reports on peripheral vascular disease in PD patients alone is limited.
