Using PET Results to Screen for Encapsulating Peritoneal Sclerosis (EPS)

Researchers studied whether the amount of sodium removed from the dialysate (sodium sieving) could predict EPS, in a 20-year study of 161 people. Age at PD start, duration of PD, and sodium sieving were all important predictors.
