AbstractBackground. Residual renal function (RRF) is an important predictor of outcome in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Whether results from survival studies in dialysis patients with RRF can also be extrapolated to anuric patients remains uncertain. In this observational study, we examined the characteristics of PD patients with a residual glomerular filtration rate (GFR) greater than or equal to 1ml/min per 1.73 m(2) vs those with complete anuria and differentiated factors that predict outcome in the two groups of patients.
