Abstract
The aim of the present study is to share the experience of chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD) at King Hussein Medical Center, Amman, Jordan, and to highlight the complications of this procedure. This is a retrospective chart review study for all the children from day 1 of life to 14 years, who underwent chronic PD for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) during the period of 10 years extending from 2009 to 2019. The following data were collected: mode of dialysis, type of peritoneal dialysis, age of starting peritoneal dialysis, gender, aetiology of ESRD, duration on PD, complications and outcome. A total number of 269 children were included: 229 patients received haemodialysis and 40 children (22 boys and 18 girls) received PD. Of those, two children were on automated PD and 38 children were on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The mean age at the start of PD was 62 38 months. The mean duration of PD was 43 months. The mean catheter duration was 34 months. Six patients were shifted to haemodialysis permanently and four patients received a kidney transplant. Eleven patients died. The most common complications were peritonitis (52.5%), exit-site infection (30%) and malfunctioning catheter (12.5%). The rate of peritonitis was one episode per 22 patient-months. Peritoneal dialysis is a promising mode of dialysis for children in Jordan. Peritonitis is the most common complication associated with PD. Kidney transplantation is the best modality of renal replacement therapy in terms of longterm survival and quality of life and should be encouraged on national level.

Key words: End-stage renal disease; Child; Jordan; Chronic peritoneal dialysis; Hemodialysis; Kidney transplant.
