ABSTRACT
While assisted PD may prove helpful for a subset of new patients, its overall effect will be small. A trend towards a small increase in incident PD rate will not translate directly into an equivalent rise in PD prevalence. Important questions about cost effectiveness and about long-term impact of home PD assistance on modality distribution remain unanswered.Kidney International (2007) 71, 602–604. doi:10.1038/sj.ki.5002153
