In developed countries, renal replacement therapy (RRT) is available to any patient who needs it. Renal replacement therapy patients still believe that starting therapy means being tied to their home nephrology center, which prevents them from traveling.

Therefore, there is a need for extensive research to evaluate the safety of long-distance travel in the discussed patient population.
