In Colombia, chronic kidney disease (CKD) has had an ascending behavior with a prevalence of up to 74.1 per 100,000 inhabitants, the start of dialysis can be done on a scheduled basis or urgently or unplanned, with the unplanned form being the most frequent. In this circumstance, hemodialysis is the preferred modality. However, in recent years there has been a tendency towards the use of peritoneal dialysis as a valid option in this context, so it is of our interest to evaluate the initial clinical results obtained between the use of peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis.
Objective: To describe the incidence of early complications (first 30 days) related to access for both peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis in patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease in a fourth-level hospital in the city of Bogotá.
