Review Article
Since the advent of hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation, these three renal replacement therapies have become common practice in the management of end‐stage renal disease. Our department was established in 1980 and has brought together nephrologists, urologists and even pediatric nephrologists who are focused on the treatment of chronic kidney disease using these renal replacement therapies. This review outlines the history of renal replacement therapy and describes the future directions in this area based on the activity in our department, which ranges from management of proteinuria to transplantation for patients at any age.
