BACKGROUND It is critical to preserve residual renal function (RRF) in peritoneal dialysis (PD), as RRF is associated with lower morbidity and mortality. There is no uniform definition of RRF, and rapidly declining RRF has rarely been studied and predominately limited to single factor analysis and not corrected for lead-time bias. METHODS An observational study in 71 incident PD patients. RRF was defined as urine output (UO) ≥500 ml/day and renal glomerular filtration rate (rGFR) ≥2 ml/min/1… CONTINUE READING
