A 68-year-old man was admitted with acute renal failure caused by cholesterol embolization after undergoing carotid artery stenting. Hemodialysis therapy (HD) was immediately required because of uremia, using nafamostat mesilate as an anticoagulant for HD. However, blue toes and gangrene of the feet worsened. To prevent use of anticoagulants and stabilize BP, HD was changed to peritoneal dialysis (PD). After starting PD, blue toes and gangrene improved markedly. Residual renal function also partially recovered. Although BP was unstable during HD, stability of BP and avoidance of anticoagulants during PD therapy might have contributed to the good results.
