Bone microarchitecture is more severely affected in patients on hemodialysis than in those receiving peritoneal dialysis
Kidney International, 06/21/2012
Pelletier S et al. – Peritoneal dialysis patients were less affected, their cortical thickness at the distal tibia being the only significant difference versus controls. Thus, the authors found more severe trabecular damage at the weight–bearing tibia in hemodialysis compared to peritoneal dialysis patients, but this latter finding needs confirmation in larger cohorts.
