Objective: Several studies have shown that local renin-angiotensin system (RAS) activity in the kidneys may play a role in the pathogenesis of hypertension and kidney damage in patients with chronic kidney disease. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of local RAS activity on hypertension and residual renal function (RRF) in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD).
