Why peritoneal dialysis?

“I feel that the rates of peritoneal dialysis are increasing. The new NKF-KDOQI guidelines came out really pushing for peritoneal dialysis, i.e., home dialysis, and the training incentive that CMS has placed on it. One of the big ways to increase peritoneal dialysis is for interventionalists to do it [catheter insertion]. Many colleagues and people that I know across the country are asking about training and placing PD catheters, because nephrologists are referring more and more to interventional radiology.“
