The effect of dialyzer membrane and design on hemostatic parameters during hemodialysis were evaluated in a prospective controlled study. This study demonstrated that hemodialysis is associated with significant platelet activation and loss, which are influenced by both dialyzer configuration and membrane composition. In addition, use of the cuprophan… CONTINUE READING
