[Comparison of 3 high-permeability dialysers].


Three capillary dialyzers, with highly permeable membranes, have been compared for their capacity of epuration of blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, phosphorus, uric acid and beta 2 microglobulin, and for their respective protein losses. There were very little differences between the dialyzers for epuration of small uremic molecules, with no benefit due to high permeability membranes in comparison with conventional dialyzers. Protein losses may be important and have to be known. About beta 2 microglobulin, filtered quantities are not correlated to changes in serum levels, suggesting the presence of other mechanisms (adsorption on the membrane and generation during hemodialysis) which influence, together with epuration, perdialytic changes of serum beta 2 microglobulin concentrations.
