    Thirty-six patients aged 1.6 to 18.8 years with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) underwent continuous, ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) between August, 1980, and May, 1982. With four or five exchanges daily, the mean serum urea and creatinine levels were 75 ± 24 mg/dl and 9.2 ± 3.1...

  • Experimental observations on peritoneal transport in rabbits. Schneider, Artur L.; Wacarda, Lutz; Von Klitzing, Egbert; Kochen, Walter; Hellenbrecht, Dieter // Kidney International Supplement;Nov1983, Issue 15, pS-89 

    Peritoneal transfer kinetics of substances differing in molecular size and lipophilic properties were studied in anuric adult rabbits with ligated ureters. In conscious animals, the dialysate/plasma concentration ratios of creatinine (Cr) and inulin (In) rose exponentially up to 200 min of...
