Common therapies for polycystic kidney disease

  Common therapies for polycystic kidney disease

  At present, there is no way to prevent the development of the disease. Early detection, prevention of the occurrence and development of complications, timely and correct treatment are essential for the patients.

  1. Cyst decompression:



  This procedure reduced the pressure on the kidney parenchyma, protected the majority of the remaining renal units from squeezing and further damage, so that the renal ischemic condition has improved, some of the renal function units were restored, which can delay the development of the disease. The key to the success of the operation is to perform the operation as early as possible. Meanwhile, cyst decompression must be thorough, and do not give up the decompression for small cysts and deep cysts. Both sides should be operated, and the interval time for bilateral operation is more than half a year. For the patients with late PKD, of which renal function damage is in the stage of nitrogen, uremia, whether or not the combination of hypertension, decompression therapy has no meaning for them. Surgery to combat the disease can aggravate the disease.

  2. Chinese medical treatment:



  At present, traditional Chinese medical science takes conservative treatment for polycystic kidney (traditional Chinese Medicine), and the effect is very good. Traditional Chinese medical science using the overall concept and treatment according to syndrome differentiation, thinks that the polycystic kidney disease is the result of external and internal factors, through the cascade diversion, and gradually let the liquid discharge, the purpose of the gradual reduction of the cyst can achieved. The traditional Chinese medicine can not overcome the genetic problems, but the effect of conservative treatment is not comparable to western medicine, which has totally no the toxic side effects and makes the disease not easy to relapse.

  3. Dialysis and kidney transplant



  The patients in end stage of renal failure should be immediately treated with dialysis treatment, and the preferred hemodialysis. The survival rate of the PKD graft is similar with other treatments, but due to the development of complications, of post processing difficulties will be increased, which can affect the effects of the kidney transplant.
