Nephrol Dial Transplant. 2002;17 Suppl 3:16-8. doi: 10.1093/ndt/17.suppl_3.16.

Abstract

A review is given of the various mechanisms by which conventional glucose/lactate-based peritoneal dialysis solutions can induce damage to the peritoneal membrane. The potential advantages of newly developed dialysis solutions and the results of recent studies on their use in patients are discussed.
