Abstract

Background: Peritoneal dialysis is a frequently used renal replacement treatment option in patients with end-stage renal failure, and it is emphasized several times that it should be started as the first treatment in the literature. However, for many different reasons, sometimes the treatment is stopped and switched to hemodialysis. In this study, we aimed to examine the reasons and factors affecting the transition to hemodialysis in our unit.
