... Abstract Online haemodiafi ltration is an extracorporeal technique, utilizing highly permeableand highly biocompatible membranes, which permits the combination of convective and diffusivesolute removal from the blood and offers increased removal of medium-weight uraemicsolutes, compared...

... with a non-signifi cant reduction in the relative risk of mortality (4 and 8%,respectively). In an attempt to defi ne the clinical impact of haemodiafi ltration, we reviewsome of the effi cacy data from clinical studies in light of a number of factors that may berelated to the high mortality among...

... Abstract The distinction between high-effi ciency haemodiafi ltration (HDF), usually applied withonline preparation of substitution fl uid, and ‘classic’ low-effi ciency HDF (using less than 15litres of substitution fl uid) makes sense since the magnitude of convection (expressed bysubstitution...

... these middle molecules. These solutes are not well cleared by low-fl ux dialysis.High-fl ux dialysis will clear middle molecules, partly by internal fi ltration. This convectivecomponent of high-fl ux dialysis can be enhanced in a predictable way by haemodiafi ltration(HDF). The convective and diffusive...
