Abstract
Dialysis adequacy (Kt/V) was investigated in two groups of patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Group I consisted of patients with serum creatinine concentration above 1200 umol/l and Group II comprised patients with serum creatinine concentration of 600 umol/l and less. The mean Kt/V was significantly higher in Group II (Kt/V, 2.0) than in Group I (Kt/V, 1.59; p 0.01) patients. The mean duration of CAPD was significantly longer in Group I (3.12 years) than in Group II (1.32 years); (p 0.01) patients, and the mean total creatinine clearance of Group II patients was significantly higher than for Group I (p 0.001) patients. There was good correlation between Kt/V and total creatinine clearance....
