Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is associated with functional and structural changes of the peritoneal membrane. In this review we describe factors contributing to peritoneal tissue remodeling, including uremia, peritonitis, volume loading, the presence of a catheter, and the PD fluid itself. These factors initiate recruitment and activation of peritoneal cells such as macrophages and mast cells, as well as activation of peritoneal cells, including mesothelial cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells… CONTINUE READING
