BACKGROUND In spite of many peritoneal tests proposed, there is still a need for a simple and reliable new approach for deriving detailed information about peritoneal membrane characteristics, especially those related to fluid transport. METHODS The sequential peritoneal equilibration test (sPET) that includes PET (glucose 2.27%, 4 h) followed by miniPET(More)
This report describes the use of continuous peritoneal dialysis (PD) as an alternative to hemodialysis (HD) in a patient with type 2 cardiorenal syndrome in the course of congestive heart failure resistant to standard pharmacological treatment. A 39-year-old man presented with a 24-year history of progressive heart failure. Ineligibility for heart(More)
Diuretic-resistant congestive heart failure in the form of type 2 cardiorenal syndrome is a problem of growing significance in everyday clinical practice because of high morbidity and mortality. There has been scant progress in the treatment of overhydration, the main cause of symptoms in this group of patients. The aim of our review is to present recent(More)
Given an increasing number of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) refractory to diuretics, new and more effective therapeutic modalities are sought. Peritoneal dialysis (PD), which provides continuous, slow ultrafiltration, may be an alternative to hemodialysis in this population. The current paper, based on a comprehensive literature review,(More)
The aim of the study was assessment of theoretical possibilities of the Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) optimization. The analysis of influence of dwells number modification and peritoneal transport character on Nightly Intermittent Peritoneal Dialysis (NIPD) efficacy and adequacy was performed. 20 patients were included in the study. The velocity of(More)
Not satisfactory enough long-term results of applying glucose in CAPD solutions as an osmotic agent were the reason of research on the alternative osmotic substances. The paper presents review of actually used solutions containing amino acids (Nutrineal) or polymer glucose (Icodextrin). The influence of these agents on metabolism of carbohydrate, lipids and(More)
The aim of the study was a comparative analysis of cardiovascular status and basic parameters of adequacy and peritoneal transport in CAPD patients. 15 persons treated with CAPD over 2 years were included in the study. Cardiovascular status at the beginning and at the end of observation was assessed using the own scoring. Patients were divided into 3 groups(More)
Increasing number of diabetics (D) on CAPD induced us to perform detailed kinetic evaluation of these patients. The purpose of the study was to characterize peritoneal solute transport parameters in diabetics and non-diabetics (ND) treated with CAPD and furthermore to assess clinical implications of eventual differences, especially with regard to(More)
The aim of the study was to analyze CAPD adequacy using own scoring including three groups of parameters: "Adequest" parameters, clinical and biochemical indices. The studied population comprised 17 patients treated with CAPD: 12 DN patients, in this number 6 female and 6 male, aged 44 +/- 10.9 years, treated with CAPD for 47 +/- 10.5 months, observed for(More)
