Continous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis In Indonesia : A Single Center Experience

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Introduction: Peritoneal dialysis is not really popular in Indonesia as the choice of renal replacement therapy in end-stage kidney disease patients. As in the last report of Indonesian Renal Registry 2017, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) was only 2% (1737 active patients) of our renal replacement therapy services, compared to 77,892 patients who were on hemodialysis. This study aims to review our practice pattern on CAPD services in a tertiary renal center.
Methods: We reviewed the clinical data from all patients who undergone CAPD from April 2006 to September 2018. Data were collected retrospectively from medical records. All of the tenckhoff catheter insertions were done by the surgeon. We only performed CAPD as the modality of peritoneal dialysis for all patients.
Results: A total of 86 patients were obtained, with 54 active patients. Female 39.5% (34/86), duration on dialysis 3.19 years, range 0.1 – 12.38 years (38.82 months, range 1.2 – 150.6 months). We found drop out rate of 36% (31/86) and the cause of drop out were death 64.5% (20/31), transfer to hemodialysis 32.3% (10/31), and kidney transplant 3.2% (1/31). The cause of death was cardiovascular 25% (5/20), peritonitis 25% (5/20), and unknown 50% (10/20).
