Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is considered as the most common form of renal replacement therapy for newborns including preterms with acute kidney injury (AKI). Although there are several reports describing successful PD performed for AKI in preterm infants, there is no data describing the use of PD to treat AKI in preterm newborns with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), which is one of the contraindications for PD.
