The Fourth overseas Congress of Peritoneal Dialysis used to be held in Venice, Italy, June 29 to July 2, 1987. through this time peritoneal dialysis had emerged as a remedy for a considerable fraction of sufferers with end-stage renal illness and 1000s of sufferers with acute renal failure. This therapy is now practiced around the globe and is the life-sustaining therapy for approximately 40,000 sufferers with persistent renal failure, representing 15 to twenty% of dialysis treatment in approximately one thousand facilities. it's not incredible, as a result, that the variety of overall healthiness pros engaged within the research and the appliance of the remedy has additionally grown exponen­ tially. the 1st foreign Symposium on Peritoneal Dialysis, equipped by way of Dr. A. Treviiio-Be­ cerra in Chapala, Mexico, in 1978, introduced jointly a bunch of pioneers while non-stop ambulatory peritoneal dialysis used to be in its infancy. In 1981, Dr. G. M.

Twardowski, and K. D. Nolph INTRODUCTION Peritoneal cavity lymphatic absorption significantly reduces net ultrafiltration (UP) and solute clearances in peritoneal dialysis. O,2) Lymphatic absorption from the peritoneal cavity occurs primarily via the subdiaphragmatic stomata, (3) which constrict following intraperitoneal administration of cholinergic drugs. (4) Neostigmine, an anticholinesterase agent, is also thought to reduce the patency of the sUbdiaphragmatic stomata and so may reduce lymphatic drainage of intraperitoneal fluid.

In an effort to avoid or at least modify the shortcomings of glucose, one may consider the use of phosphatidylcholine as a UP modulator, keeping the glucose concentration in the peritoneal dialysis solution as low as possible. Long-term studies are needed to conflrID our observations. REFERENCES 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Slingeneyer A, Canaud B, Mion C. Nephron 1983;33:133-138. Grahamc GR, Torchia MG, Dankcvich KA, ct al.
