IN THE NEWS: encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis

We don't talk about PD much. Here is a new PD related study on EPS.
This is the largest incidence and outcomes study on EPS.
Few take home points

1. EPS is rare and the incidence is 4% in 8 years and as low as 0.3% in 3 years
2. The predictors of EPS are younger age, and duration of peritoneal dialysis
3. The death risk is low

Check out this nice study on this enigmatic entity
