In long-term peritoneal dialysis (PD) morphological and functional changes of the peritoneal membrane are common. Sub-mesothelial fibrosis, angiogenesis and vasculopathy are typical histomorphological alterations of the peritoneal membrane, which, to a certain degree, are induced by uremia and recurrent peritonitis. The most important causative factor, however, represents the chronic exposure to PD solutions. Glucose, glucose degradation products and advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) via… CONTINUE READING
