Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) was introduced by Popovich et al. in 1976, with 4-6 exchanges per day and long dwell time between the exchanges. Later, a group from Seattle used the combination of cyclic and automated PD in their patients and then it was called as continuous automated ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAAPD). Later in 1981, this technique was given the name continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) by Diaz-Buxo. Currently, over 130,000 patients are on CAPD worldwide, and it is the most popular form of peritoneal dialysis.
This book on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis is designed to address the various clinical decision questions supported by typical clinical scenarios, with which all readers will be able to identify. Thus, it provides an excellent opportunity to widen one’s perspective in this area.
This issues provides a comprehensive description of standard and alternative exposures of shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm and hand along with the relevant anatomy, and pearls and pitfalls of the described exposures and case examples illustrating the relevant points. The focus of the second section is on soft tissue coverage of the upper extremity.
