Hemodynamic studies in the conscious, haemodialyzed dog 3. Current status of peritoneal dialysis in veterinary medicine and development of CAPD in the dog as a model for dialysis-related disorders in man 4. Development of a canine model for continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis 5. Experimental models of acute tubular necrosis 6. aminoglycoside-induced toxic nephropathy 7.
