1A), during an episode of acute peritonitis (Fig. 1B), and after long-term treatment (Fig. 1C). In Fig. IA is an example of a well-functioning peritoneal membrane, where it is possible to see a gradual decrease in osmolar gradient at the beginning of the exchange until the end of a 4-h period. In Fig. 1B, the typical stage of dissipation of the osmolality gradient that is achieved after about 1 h of treatment is shown. This curve gives evidence of hyperpermeability. In Fig. IC we can follow the equilibration curve of hypopermeable peritoneum; in this condition, peritoneal membrane is not able to ensure UF even when the number of hypertonic exchanges is increased.
