The contribution of FWT to TCUF continued thereafter, together with an increase in small solute transport, meaning that the contribution of SCWT decreased. Possibly an increase in the resistance of the peritoneal membrane to fluid transport, as judged from a decreasing hydraulic permeability in this study and a hypothetical greater amount of AQP-1s in the increase vascular surface area can be of importance in this finding.
