How can I implement the function sort and compress in the vancouver bibliography style? Also, the last reference (\bibitem{sitoedta}) of the bibliography ends with a ';' instead of a '.' because it's a shorter reference and I have no access to the missing parts of the entry. How can I fix this?

\section{Renal function}

\subsection{Urine composition}

Uremic toxins can be classified in accordance with their physiochemical characteristics, which affect the removal process during dialysis \cite{RefWorks:102, RefWorks:6, RefWorks:94}: % SORT AND COMPRESS doesn't work
\begin{itemize}
\item
small and water-soluble compounds
    \begin{itemize}
        \item
        they display a molecular weight lesser than 500 $Dalton$ ($Da$);
        \item
        the main molecules are urea, creatinine, uric acid and guanidine;
        \item
        they are easily removed through dialysis;
        \item
        they are not necessarily toxic; 
    \end{itemize}
\item
medium size molecules
    \begin{itemize}
        \item
        they are compounds, mostly polypeptides, with relatively high Mw, such as $ \beta_2 $- microglobulin and leptin;
        \item
        they are solely removed with membranes equipped with pores large enough to allow the substances to pass; 
    \end{itemize}
\item
liposoluble and/or protein-bound compounds: 
    \begin{itemize}
        \item
        they display a low Mw, similar to phenols and indoles; 
        \item
        these molecules are predominantly toxic and difficult to be removed by way of the majority of the dialysis methods available nowadays;
        \item
        their removal widely depends on the equilibrium between the free and the occupied sites;
        \item
        for this type of solutes, the use of adsorbent methods may be more effective \cite{RefWorks:9, RefWorks:105, RefWorks:143}. %16-18 cambiare stile bibliografia
    \end{itemize}
\end{itemize}

\subsection{Peritoneal dialysis}

An additional limit is represented by the absence of hydrostatic pressure gradients able to guarantee convective mass exchange; the process is solely diffusive. The control over the removal  of the fluid is obtained though the variation of the dialysate composition, for instance by adding glucose or icodextrin as osmolytes in dialysate \cite{sitoedta}.

    While you wait for an answer to this question, can you go back to your previous ones and look if the answers solve your problems and accept them, if they do? – user36296 Sep 28 '17 at 15:30

    Please complete your code snippet to be compilable and add some of the bib entrys to your question too. – Mensch Sep 28 '17 at 16:32
  • Can you please add the problematic entries from the .bib file? – user36296 Sep 29 '17 at 10:34
  • Concerning your third question: if you cannot fill all the mandatory fields of an article, don't use an article but something else. Try for example @misc{sitoedta, instead. – user36296 Sep 29 '17 at 10:48

  • to compress the cites, you could use the cite package.

  • if you cannot fill all the mandatory fields of an article, don't use an article but something else. Try for example @misc{sitoedta, instead.
