ⓘ Renal replacement therapy

Renal replacement therapy is therapy that replaces the normal blood-filtering function of the kidneys. It is used when the kidneys are not working well, which is called kidney failure and includes acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease. Renal replacement therapy includes dialysis, hemofiltration, and hemodiafiltration, which are various ways of filtration of blood with or without machines. Renal replacement therapy also includes kidney transplantation, which is the ultimate form of replacement in that the old kidney is replaced by a donor kidney.

These procedures do not cure kidney disease. In the context of chronic kidney disease, they are more accurately viewed as life-prolonging procedures, though if chronic kidney disease is dialysis and with a flap of skin is detected at an early stage and successfully transplanted, the clinical course can be very good, the life expectancy of many years. In addition, in some acute illnesses or injuries as a result of acute kidney injury, a person may survive for many years with relatively good renal function before needing intervention again, as long as they had a good response to dialysis, they have a kidney transplant fairly quickly, if necessary, their body rejected the transplanted kidney, and they have no other significant health problems. At the initiation of dialysis in acute renal failure usually brings more favorable results.
