Peritoneal dialysis

  • D. G. Oreopoulos


Studies on the permeability of the peritoneal membrane and the factors which influence it1 started as early as 1877, and a significant amount of information had accumulated before 1923 when Ganter2 performed the first peritoneal dialysis (PD) on uraemic rabbits and later on a uraemic patient. Since this pioneer work, many investigators have studied PD and the technique has prolonged the lives of many renal failure patients. Those who wish a review of the early literature on PD are referred to Boen3.
