Kidney Failure & Kidney Replacement Therapies

Kidney failure is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. When chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses to kidney failure, treatment often includes kidney replacement therapies (KRT) such as dialysis or kidney transplantation. Managing patients with kidney failure, dialysis, and kidney transplantation requires more intensive treatment and often palliative care.
