Renal Replacement Therapy

Renal replacement therapy replaces the blood filtering function that the kidneys perform normally. The therapy is recommended for patients who are suffering from kidney failure, acute kidney injury, and chronic kidney disease when the kidneys are not working well. Kidney transplantation is the ultimate form of replacing the old kidney with the donor's kidney. Renal replacement therapy also includes filtration of blood with or without the help of machines, hemofiltration, hemodiafiltration, and also dialysis. Therapy is often viewed to be a life-extending treatment and not a cure for kidney disease, although if the disease is managed well with dialysis and early diagnosis, the results are quite favorable. The available renal replacement therapies include peritoneal dialysis (PD), intermittent hemodialysis (IHD), and continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT).
