Pediatric Dialysis

Our range of Fresenius Medical Care dialysis products fulfils the highest quality standards in the areas of acute and chronic peritoneal dialysis, chronic hemodialysis and acute kidney injury.

Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is in general the preferred treatment modality for pediatric patients to bridge the time until transplantation. It is easier to perform, less invasive than extracorporeal treatments and does not require anticoagulation. Our Fresenius Medical Care portfolio offers a comprehensive range of therapy systems adapted to the specific requirements of PD in pediatric patients.

Hemodialysis

Hemodialysis (HD) is also a treatment option for children with chronic kidney disease. Older children and adolescents eventually prefer HD to PD because it affects less their body image than a PD catheter.
