Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Peritoneal Dialysis in Congestive Heart Failure
Official Title  ICMJE Symptomatic Improvement by Peritoneal Dialysis in Patients With End Stage Congestive Heart Failure
Brief Summary

Rationale: End-stage congestive heart failure is a serious invalidating condition with a poor prognosis and increasing incidence. Non-randomized observations showed peritoneal dialysis (PD) in these patients to improve clinically from NYHA stadium III-IV to as low as NYHA stadium I-II. A randomized trial is needed to test whether PD improves symptoms in this condition and to find an optimal scheme.

Objective: To improve symptomatology in severe chronic failure patients. Study design: Open, parallel intervention trial comparing 2 schemes of peritoneal dialysis with icodextrin (Extraneal®) with standard medical therapy..

Study population: Patients with chronic refractory left ventricular congestive heart failure (LVEF < 30%, older than 18 years).

Intervention: Peritoneal dialysis with one (night) or two (night and day) dwells with icodextrin (Extraneal®).

Main study parameters/endpoints: Reduction in NYHA classification of symptomatic Congestive Heart Failure at 8 months after start of PD therapy. Burden of congestive heart failure: measured by reduction in unfavorable days (noted by patients in diaries and including days of hospitalization for CHF-deterioration and death).
