Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis is the renal replacement therapy used to filter out waste products and purifies blood. Peritoneal dialysis needs a surgical incision at the bottom of the abdomen. Peritoneal dialysis uses the membrane of peritoneum to filter blood instead of man-made membrane or machine. As the peritoneum contains numerous blood vessels like kidney so it mimics the function of kidneys.  Peritoneal dialysis need to be done more frequently then hemodialysis.  Peritoneal dialysis need a solution called dialysate used to carry out the dialysis process.
