Brief Summary:
In this study, the recent trends in outcomes according to the dialysis modality in Korea since 2009, the effect of the use of peritoneal dialysis solutions containing icodextrin or high-glucose on various outcomes, the usefulness of 'PD first strategy', and the economic burden according to the dialysis modality will be investigated retrospectively using the Korean Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA) database.

Condition or disease
Kidney Failure, Chronic

Detailed Description:

This study is designed as an observational and retrospective cohort study, thus there will be no intervention or specified prescription.

For the comparison of outcomes according to dialysis modality, we will adopt an intention-to-treat analysis, and consider the dialysis modality at day 90 to be the initial dialysis modality. However, the investigators will also regard the dialysis modality at day 30 as the initial dialysis modality in order to evaluate and compare earlier mortality.
