Original Title: Diálisis peritoneal versus hemodiálisis en enfermedad renal crónica – estadio 5
Authors' recommendations: CONCLUSIONS Moderate quality evidence suggests that peritoneal dialysis, in patients with end stage renal disease not eligible for hemodialysis, offers clinical benefits comparable to those of hemodialysis. Moderate quality evidence suggests that in patients with end stage renal disease, peritoneal dialysis is at least as effective as hemodialysis in reducing mortality for any cause and cardiovascular mortality and it also reduces the risk of developing congestive heart failure when compared with hemodialysis. The assessment of other parameters such as ferritin, transferrin saturation index, parathyroid hormone and quality of life did not show significant differences between both types of dialysis. The clinical practice guidelines consider both types of dialysis as treatment alternatives in patients with end stage renal disease taking into account that both have advantages and disadvantages. The public and private health sponsors consulted cover both alternatives.
