Assessing the contact ‐activation of coagulation during hemodialysis with three different polysulfone filters: A prospective randomized cross‐over trial
This study aims to evaluate its amplitude, comparing dialyzers made of different polysulfone polymers, by measuring D‐dimers in the filter‐rinsing fluids (Frf) and to test whether Frf D‐dimers are suitable candidate markers to assess contact coagulation activation during HD. Methods In a prospective, cross‐over study 41 hemodialysis patients were randomly allocated to nine HD sessions with three types of polysulfone membranes: Filter A: Poliflux®RevaclearMAX; Filter B: Helixone®Fx80, Filter C: Polyflux®H210. Findings A total of 117 HD sessions were studied. The mean (SD) filter (Frf) D‐dimers were 0.19 µg/L (0.56) for Filter A; 0.66 µg/L (2.81) for Filter B; 0.33 µg/L (1.13) for Filter C. Significant differences were found: A vs. B (P
We describe the successful treatment of a patient with severe rhabdomyolysis following heart transplantation by the usage of hemoadsorption.
Conclusion: Cutaneous manifestations in hemodialysis patients were frequent and dominated by xerosis, pruritus, and alopecia. Factors associated with some of these dermatologic manifestations were seniority in hemodialysis, long duration of the hemodialysis session, and female gender. PMID: 32099542 [PubMed]
ConclusionFast induction of eWBH with homogenous thermal distribution is feasible in pigs using the Vith èr WBH device. Severe hemodynamic disturbances, rhabdomyolysis, and hyperkalemia were observed.

This study examined the association between oBPs and all‐cause mortality in G3B‐5D CKD. This is a population‐based cohort study including all subjects with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)
