After suicidal ingestion of 9 g Propafenone, a 31-year-old woman showed unconsciousness, cerebral convulsions, respiratory depression, sinus arrest, ventricular tachycardia and recurrent atrioventricular block. The maximum Propafenone plasma level was 4,702 ng/ml. Only 67.2 mg of Propafenone were eliminated within 4 h of hemoperfusion. Successful therapy(More)
After six years of home haemodialysis and two years of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis a 59-year-old woman developed an aluminium-induced osteopathy, myopathy and normochromic anaemia. She was at first treated with intravenous, then peritoneal, deferoxamine, 1 g every other day. Before treatment, 15.8 micrograms aluminium (Al) had been eliminated(More)
Intestinal absorption of aluminum (Al) from the phosphate binder aluminum-hydroxide-chloride (PhosphonormR) and successive renal and peritoneal Al elimination were studied in 11 patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Al was measured by atomic absorption spectrometry in serum, urine, and dialysis fluid. Al levels in serum of(More)
1. Aluminium concentrations were measured in hair, plasma and bone samples from different groups of chronic renal insufficient patients and from a control group (75 healthy volunteers plus 21 deceased subjects). A cross-sectional study with 40 haemodialysis patients and two longitudinal studies were undertaken, the first comprising of 12 home haemodialysis(More)
Since dialysis solutions in CAPD are now nearly aluminum free, the only source for elevated aluminum levels are aluminum-containing phosphate binders. Elimination with CAPD is insufficient to prevent aluminum accumulation. Therefore, we investigated a phosphate binder consisting of calcium alginate, a natural polyuronic acid, containing 100 mg calcium/g(More)
Treatment of diabetics with end-stage renal failure is still a hazard. We report on 33 insulin-dependent diabetic patients who were treated with CAPD over a period of up to 70 months. Seven of them have been transplanted. The evaluation of the clinical and biological parameters serum protein, phosphate, calcium, revealed acceptable values. Hemoglobin rose(More)
The operative procedure of creating a reliable access to the abdominal cavity and the early detection and treatment of non-metabolic complications are the main purposes of the Diisseldorf procedure, which permits long-term success and easy handling in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (PD). Experience with 90 patients (1979-1986/mean PD interval(More)
