Which kind of dialysis to have?

To make an informed choice, patient needs to learn something about the different kinds of dialysis.

There are two different kinds of dialysis -

  • Haemodialysis
    • Haemodialysis cleans and filters patient's blood using a machine to temporarily rid his body ofharmful wastes, extra salt, and extra water.
  • Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)

Peritoneal dialysis is another procedure that removes extra water, wastes, and chemicals from patient's body. This type of dialysis uses the lining of patient's abdomen to filter his blood. This lining is called the peritoneal membrane and acts as the artificial Kidney. With this method, instead of being cleaned by an artificial membrane outside the body, the blood is cleaned inside the body, through the Peritoneum.

What is Kidney/Renal Transplantation?

Kidney transplantation is a surgical operation in which the surgeon places a healthy Kidney from another person into patient's body. Those patients who are suffering from chronic Kidney failure, or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) opt for this surgery. The donated kidney does the work that patient's two failed kidneys used to do.

It is important to note that the donor must be a close relative or family member in a Kidney Transplant Surgery. The Renal Transplant Team determines the suitability of the donor for the donation after studying the various aspects and performing a series of medical tests.

A comprehensive physical evaluation is done on the patient.  To evaluate their suitability for donation Living Kidney donors also undergo a complete medical history and physical examination.

A successful Kidney transplant can improve the quality of life of the patient drastically for a patient suffering with chronic Kidney failure or end stage renal disease. After the Kidney transplantation the patient need not be dependent on dialysis.
