During peritoneal equilibrium test (PET), intermediate measures of Dt/P (dialysate/plasma creatinine ratio), D0/P, D2/P and D4/P ratios might provide additional information regarding a patient’s cardiovascular mortality. We aimed to characterise heterogeneity of dialysate creatinine response patterns based on three ratios and compare cardiovascular mortality risks by response patterns.

3,477 patients initialising peritoneal dialysis (PD) between 2007-2015 were measured D0/P, D2/P and D4/P at baseline and 2-year cardiovascular mortality was defined as the primary outcome. Latent class mixed-effect models were fitted to identify distinct patterns of dialysate creatinine response. Multivariable Logistic regression model with adjustment of cardiometabolic factors were used to compare cardiovascular mortality by latent classes.

The 1st latent class including 36% of participants was characterised by consistently increasing and high Dt/P ratios both at 2-hour and 4-hour. The 2nd class including 61% of participants characterised by sharply increased ratio at 2-hour and slightly increased ratio at 4-hour. The 3rd class included 3% of participants with decreased ratio at 2-hour and increased ratio at 4-hour. Comparing the 1st class, the lower cardiovascular mortality risk was identified in the 2nd and 3rd class with adjusted odds ratio 0.65 (95% confidence interval: 0.62-0.69) and 0.48 (0.41-0.57), respectively.

Patients with decreased Dt/P ratio between 0-hour and 2-hour and low ratios at 2-hour and 4-hour tend to have low cardiovascular mortality. Latent class analysis seems to be a promising method to reveal unidentified subgroups that do not fit into the risk category defined by Dt/P ratio at 4-hour.
