Abstract

Pregnancy in Patients on Chronic Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)

Mamoun Sebti*, M. C. Fourati, F. Zidane, M. Yousfi, S. Bargach

Peritoneal dialysis consists of an exchange between a liquid, the dialysate, and the patient's blood through the peritoneum. Pregnancy in women with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) treated with peritoneal dialysis is very rare and at high maternal-fetal risk. This markedly reduced fertility and fetal loss in dialysis patients is not well understood. This would appear to be due to the consequences of metabolic and endocrine abnormalities resulting in decreased ovulation and a hostile intrauterine environment. Pregnancy in hemodialysis patients is therefore a valuable pregnancy.
