Dialysis and pregnancy: new perspectives

Dialisi e gravidanza: quali prospettive

Abstract

Although pregnancy is rare in women on dialysis, recent studies show that intensification of dialysis regimens or nocturnal dialysis treatment may be associated with unexpected improvements in pregnancy outcomes. Nonetheless management of pregnancy in dialysis remains very challenging. Thus it becomes necessary that nephrologists dealing with dialysed women of child-bearing age be aware of these data to assist their patients to make informed decisions, when a pregnancy event is planned or arises. It would be useful to have a systematic and prospective collection of pregnancy data in dialysis in order to have a more solid knowledge for clinical counselling.
