BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES There is a paucity of large longitudinal studies on the time course of peritoneal fluid transport. The aim of the present study was to longitudinally analyze changes in fluid transport and relevant solute transport parameters in patients treated with a conventional peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluid and, to mimic clinical reality, not selected for the presence or absence of ultrafiltration (UF) failure. METHODS This prospective single-center cohort study followed 138… CONTINUE READING
