Polycystic Kidney Disease is a chronically progressive condition. According to research, about 60% of PKD patients have high blood pressure by age 20-30, and nearly 50% of PKD patients have renal failure by age 60. In the early stage, controlling high blood pressure very well can slow down the deteriorating rate of PKD developing renal failure. A healthy diet and correct anti-hypertensive agents can help keep blood pressure range in the normal level and improve patients’ prognosis. However, if only treating high blood pressure, fluid-filled cysts will continue to develop in the kidney, that is to say, patients have to face kidney failure in the future.

However, after the surgery, small kidney cysts can grow more quickly with enough places. In addition, some kidney tissues are more likely to loss during the surgery. Therefore, patients’ prognosis with surgery is usually worse that they expect.
