BACKGROUND Residual renal function (RRF) is an important prognostic indicator in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. We determined the predictors of RRF loss in a cohort of incident CAPD patients. METHODS We reviewed the record of 645 incident CAPD patients. RRF loss is represented by the slope of decline of residual glomerular filtration rate (GFR) as well as the time to anuria. RESULTS The average rate of residual GFR decline was -0.083 ± 0.094 mL/min/month. The… CONTINUE READING
