BACKGROUND The accumulation of larger and protein-bound toxins is involved in the uraemic syndrome but their elimination by dialysis therapy remains difficult. In the present study, the impact of the albumin permeability of recently introduced advanced high-flux dialysis membranes on the removal of such substances was tested in haemodialysis and online(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Serum free light chain (FLC) levels are correlated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages and are highest in patients on hemodialysis (HD). Aim of this study was to assess the FLC removal efficiency of Elisio™-210H dialyzer using either high-flux HD or on line high efficiency hemodiafiltration (HDF) modalities in CKD-5D patients. METHODS(More)
Residual renal function (RRF) contributes to the achievement of treatment adequacy in CKD-5 patients. It may facilitate patients' acceptance of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in minimizing dietary and fluid restriction. It has been confirmed to improve dialysis patient outcomes. Attempts to preserve RKF in incident CKD-5 patients are still subject to(More)
Purification of high molecular uremic toxins by conventional hemodialysis is limited. It remains associated with a high morbidity and excessively high mortality. Online hemodiafiltration using a high permeability hemodiafilter, an ultrapure dialysate, and which tends to maximize substitution volumes, provides a high efficiency and low bio-incompatibility(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) has become over the last decade the third cause of CKD-5 requiring launch of renal replacement therapy. Type 2 diabetes (DM2) representing 90% is a severe comorbid condition that is associated in almost 20% of dialysis patients in France. In spite major progresses in the management of diabetic dialysis patients, the cardiovascular(More)
