Three years of clinical experience with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis are summarized. Serum urea nitrogen, creatinine, hematocrit, nerve conduction velocity, calcium, inorganic phosphorus, serum proteins, and electrolytes have been maintained in acceptable ranges. Peritonitis, although reduced in incidence because of solutions in plastic bags and a new adapter, is still a problem. Excessive carbohydrate absorption, obesity, and high serum triglyceride concentrations may be long-term problems in some patients.
