      Objective: To assess differences in the functional capacity score in patients receiving hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Material and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted out in Lima, Peru. Participants were patients receiving hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis from the Nephrology Department of Hospital Nacional Edgardo Rebagliati Martins y sus redes asistenciales. The Functional capacity score was measured through a six-question survey and the application of the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB). Differences were identified through mean ration using a Poisson regression analysis. Results: A total of 144 patients, with a mean age of 54 years, were included in this study. Patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis had higher score that those receiving hemodialysis (mean ratio = 1.20, p <0.05). This difference remain significant even after adjusting for age, gender, work activity and comorbidities (mean ratio = 1.25, p <0.05). Conclusions: Patients receiving peritoneal dialysis present better functional capacity when compared to patients receiving hemodialysis.
