Aim: Encapsulated peritoneal sclerosis is characterized by neoangiogenesis and fibrosis. Octreotide, a somatostatin analogue is a well-known antifibrotic, antiproliferative and anti-angiogenic agent. The aim of the study is to evaluate the effects of octreotide in encapsulated peritoneal sclerosis-induced neoangiogenesis and fibrosis and compare the results with resting.
