About

The purpose of this study is to validate the concept of adapted automated PD a modified Peritoneal Equilibration Test (PET), will be performed in children on chronic PD. Instead of a single 4 hour standard dwell, two double mini PET using the same type and total volume of dialysate and the same total dwell time (150min) will be performed in randomised sequence. An double mini test consists of two identical dwells, reflecting routine PD, the other one of a short small dwell followed by a long, large dwell as suggested from adapted PD regimes successfully applied in adult PD patients.

Full description

Present peritoneal dialysis treatment is hampered by the limited efficacy of currently applied regimen, mainly consisting of a series of standard dwells with the same amount of dialysate and dwell time. New cycler machines available for routine therapy now allow modification of time and volume of each dwell and thus to individually adapt PD regime. In fact a recent multi-center trial in adult patients suggests that a PD regimen consisting of a sequence of short small dwells followed by large and long lasting dwells in total applying the same amount of dialysate during the same total treatment time substantially improves fluid and toxin removal. Underlying beneficial mechanisms are highly debated. Prior to adaptation of such PD treatment patterns to children on automated PD in the routine clinical setting, the tolerability and biochemical effects need to be demonstrated. To this end, the Peritoneal Equilibration Test (PET), which is routinely performed in children during a day hospital treatment to analyse peritoneal transport function, will be modified. Instead of a single 4 hour standard dwell, two double mini PET using the same type and total volume of dialysate and the same total dwell time (150min) will be performed in randomised sequence in a total of 15 stable pediatric PD patients treated in four different European pediatric dialysis centres. The conventional double mini PET consists of two identical cycles (fill volume 1 L/m², 75 min), the adapted one of a short, small cycle (0.6 mL/m² BSA, 30 min) followed by a long, large cycle (1.4 mL/m², 120 min). A total of 22 ml of blood will be drawn via a peripheral i.v. line, intraperitoneal pressure, in clinical routine controlled once during a PET, will be measured with each dwell. The study analyses the time and volume dependent PD transport mechanisms. Patients included may benefit from the detailed analysis of peritoneal membrane function, allowing for optimisation of the individual PD prescription.

Adapted double mini PET
Active Comparator group
Description:
PET = Peritoneal Equilibration Test, a test routinely performed to measure peritoneal transport rates of solutes and water in peritoneal dialysis patients. To this end the routinely administered dialysis fluid is infused into the peritoneal cavity. The test will be modified (adapted): A short, small cycle (0.6 mL/m² BSA, 30 min) followed by a long, large cycle (1.4 mL/m², 120 min) will be performed in each patient and compared to a standard double mini PET.
Treatment:
Other: Adapted double mini PET
Standard double mini PET
Placebo Comparator group
Description:
The Standard double mini PET consists of two identical cycles (fill volume 1 L/m², 75 min of dwell time)
Treatment:
Other: Standard double mini PET
