Structural and functional peritoneal membrane changes are associated with long-term peritoneal dialysis. These changes can lead to ultrafiltration failure and peritoneal fibrosis, reducing the efficacy of the peritoneal membrane to remove waste and balance fluid and electrolytes. The loss of mesothelial cells from the basement membrane is one of the major characteristics in peritoneal membrane structural change. Thus, if the reduction of peritoneal mesothelial cell mass in peritoneal dialysis… CONTINUE READING
