Developmental Aspects of Peritoneal Dialysis
The use of the peritoneal membrane for removing uremic solutes was first reported in 1923 (1). Since then many investigators have contributed to bringing peritoneal dialysis (P.D.) from an experimental technique conducted in animals to its present state of clinical prominence. Although the technique of peritoneal dialysis is being used with increased frequency in children, relatively few studies dealing with dialysis kinetics have been performed in children and/or the developing animal.
