Critically ill neonates are at high risk for acute kidney injury (AKI). Renal supportive therapy (RST) can be an important tool for supporting critically ill neonates with AKI, particularly in cases of oliguria and fluid overload. There are few reports of RST for management of oligo-anuric AKI in the extremely low-birth-weight infant weighing <1000 g. We report successful provision of peritoneal dialysis (PD) to an 830-g neonate with oligo-anuric AKI through adaptation of a standard pediatric acute PD catheter.
