Abstract

This report describes the first case of uninterrupted peritoneal dialysis (PD) after robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. Frequent low-volume PD exchanges in a supine position to minimize intra-abdominal pressure starting on post-operative day 3 successfully provided adequate clearance and ultrafiltration. The patient did not encounter any metabolic or wound complications. Pre-admission PD prescription was resumed on post-operative day 14. Interim hemodialysis was not needed.
