Based on the 2015 USRDS report, the use of HHD by incident ESKD patients increased by 222% from 2007 to 2013. Even with the large relative rise in HHD, its overall utilization as a home dialysis modality is significantly lower than that of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Home dialysis, either HHD or PD, was utilized by 9.1% of all patients undergoing dialysis as of 2013.
