Abstract

Following kidney failure, metabolites normally excreted in urine accumulate in the body. They can, however, be eliminated by dialysis procedures, most commonly by haemodialysis (artificial kidney), or in some cases by peritoneal dialysis (Traut, 1969; Jutzler and Traut, 1973); in the latter method, the patient’s peritoneum is the dialysis membrane.
