Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients with significant renal impairment have difficulties maintaining a viable pregnancy due to maternal and fetal complications. Both peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis support throughout pregnancy has been reported to assist in these pregnancies. We report our experience with the use of peritoneal dialysis in five cases leading to successful deliveries with minimal complications.
