In contrast, in the NECOSAD study, the authors considered anuric peritoneal dialysis patients to have acceptable patient and technique survival, and the risk factors for death were the same as in the dialysis population as a whole [43]; similar conclusions were found in the EAPOS study in anuric patients on APD [44] and in anuric patients with high body surface area [45].
In another prospective cohort study, the NECOSAD Study Group examined the relative contribution of RRF and peritoneal clearance to patient survival (Termorshuizen et al., 2003).
The results of NECOSAD study showed that survival in diabetic patients with ESRD was worse compared to nondiabetic patients and that diabetes mellitus has a very strong impact on survival even if it is not the primary cause of ESRD [3].
