The peritoneal equilibration test (PET) is well established as a tool for classifying patients as low (L), low average (LA), high average (HA), or high (H) peritoneal transporters. We performed this retrospective 6 year cohort survey to evaluate the impact of different types of PET results on technique survival and patient survival on automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) therapy. From March 1992 to May 1998, 50 patients (20 men, 30 women) receiving APD were enrolled. The mean follow-up period… CONTINUE READING
