Abstract
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is associated with amenorrhea and impaired fertility, and pregnancy occurs uncommonly in patients requiring dialysis. Even though it occurs, obstetrical complications such as spontaneous abortion, still birth, polyhydramnios, preterm birth, fetal growth restriction, preeclampsia are common. So successful live birth in those patients is very rare. The intensive dialysis to maintain a predialysis BUN <50 mg/dL is very important, and the management of anemia, hypertension, electrolytes, bone minerals, and nutrition is also concerned. We report a case of successful live birth in a patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and a case of preterm birth in a patient undergoing hemodialysis (HD).
Key Words: CRF, CAPD, HD, Pregnancy
