ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) refers to permanent kidney failure. It is the final stage of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) where the kidney functions at less than 10-15% of the normal capacity. The growing prevalence of diabetes, hypertension and large elderly population are rapidly driving the number of ESRD patients globally. There are two methods used for treating ESRD patients: kidney transplant or dialysis.
Dialysis is the process of blood purification i.e. the removal of waste and toxic substances from the body and it can be done via two procedures.
- Peritoneal dialysis (PD
