The disappearance rate of intraperitoneally administered macromolecules is often used to calculate lymphatic absorption during CAPD. The possible contribution of local accumulation (trapping) of such solutes in the tissues surrounding the peritoneal cavity, leading to overestimation of lymphatic flow, was investigated in eight CAPD patients. They were studied twice during a four hour dwell, glucose 1.36%, to which polydisperse neutral dextran 70 1 g/liter had been added for measurement of… CONTINUE READING
