Dialysis is a medical treatment that partially replaces kidney function and becomes necessary when the kidneys are no longer able to function normally (renal failure),especially when the patient's function is 85-90% impaired (GFR less than 15) .
- Patients whose kidneys are not functioning
- Renal failure
- Kidney transplant
- 4 hours, 3 times a week
What is kidney dialysis?
Kidney Chronic failure
End-stage renal failure occurs when chronic renal failure, the progressive loss of kidney function, reaches an advanced stage. In the case of end-stage renal failure, the kidneys are no longer able to function properly to meet the needs of the body.
Usually, the kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from the blood, which is then excreted in the urine. And once, the kidneys no longer have the capacity to filter, dangerous levels of liquids, toxins, and waste accumulate in the body.
At the end stage of renal failure, the individual would need dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive. But they may choose not to have dialysis or a kidney transplant, and they may choose conservative care to manage symptoms, to achieve the best quality of life possible.
What is kidney dialysis for?
Dialysis is an alternative treatment that can only partially replace kidney function. It eliminates excess waste and water (or toxins) accumulated in the body from the blood.
It makes it possible to:
- Purify blood from waste (urea, creatinine, etc.) not excreted by the diseased kidney.
- Balance the distribution of water and other dissolved substances in the body.
- Restore appetite and physical fitness to improve quality of life and reintegrate into social activities.
Renal dialysis is linked to severe restrictions, particularly in those receiving dialysis and dietary restrictions, in particular restrictions on water, salt, potassium, and phosphorus.
Renal dialysis techniques in Turkey
Hemodialysis treatment in Istanbul
Hemodialysis is a technique adopted in clinics in Turkey, which involves the exchange of the patient’s blood with dialysate (dialysis fluid) whose composition is close to normal blood. This exchange occurs through the membrane contained in the filter, also known as a hemodialysis analyzer.
Indeed, the dialysis generator guarantees the production of dialysis fluid and controls the blood flow through the dialysis machine and the disposal of waste and water.
This modality requires an effective and permanent vascular first: arteriovenous fistula or central venous catheter.
The principle of fistula dialysis in Istanbul is very simple. Our best urologists use two needles. The first is used to bring the blood to the dialysis machine, and the other is used to deliver it after purification. The connection with the venous catheter performs the same function.
The duration and frequency of medical treatment sessions vary from patient to patient: generally, the average duration of treatment courses is 4 hours, 3 times a week.
The course of haemodiafiltration procedure
It is a technique that combines hemodialysis and hemofiltration:
Haemodiafiltration is a convection movement adopted in Turkey, used to filter 18 liters and replace them with physiological serum prepared and sterilized by filtration, allowing large molecules to penetrate the pores of the dialysis membrane through large amounts of water. Furthermore, online hemodialysis can only be performed in one center and imposes additional controls on the reinjection fluid, which is why Turquie Santé has selected you the best most widespread clinics in Istanbul, Turkey. These clinics work with the world’s leading urologists to provide you with comprehensive support.
Peritoneal dialysis course& Prices
This dialysis modality uses the peritoneum as the dialysis membrane, through which the blood to be purified and sterile dialysate is exchanged.
The peritoneum is the natural membrane that surrounds the abdominal organs. Peritoneal dialysis requires the surgical placement of a flexible catheter in the peritoneal cavity. The catheter is used to renew the dialysate.
This is a home technique that is done every day and is easy to handle. It takes an average of one to two weeks of training.
However, with Turquie Santé, you can perform peritoneal dialysis in the best clinics in Istanbul and with the world’s excellent urologists.
Each change of pouch lasts on average 20 to 30 minutes, dialysate remains in the abdominal cavity 4 to 5 hours during the day and 8 to 10 hours at night.
Turquie Sané assure you the cheapest prices to carry out your dialysis.
