Loss of peritoneal function is a major factor leading to treatment failure in peritoneal dialysis (PD). To date, however, the relationship between the observed functional changes (reduction in ultrafiltration and changes in solute transport) and the structural alterations in the membrane have not been fully defined. Here we present data from the Peritoneal Biopsy Registry identifying and characterizing both changes in parietal peritoneal membrane thickness (degree of fibrosis) and vascular… CONTINUE READING
