AbstractThe pathways and physiology of lymph absorption (LA) from the peritoneal cavity are well documented; however, much uncertainty still exists as to the various clinical and demographic factors affecting LA. We studied LA measured by the albumin instillation method, in adult Chinese CAPD patients, and showed that it was independent of age, sex, body surface area, duration of dialysis, intrinsic renal disease, use of intraperitoneal drugs (heparin/antibiotics/deferroxamine) and frequency of past bacterial peritonitis. High lymph absorbers had a relatively higher transcapillary cumulative ultrafiltration than low lymph absorbers. An enhanced LA was associated with a high initial intraperitoneal volume. Assessment of diaphragmatic strength by the decrement in vital capacity on changing from an erect to a supine position failed to distinguish patients with high and low LA.
