Continuous renal replacement therapy is associated with reduced serum ammonia levels and mortality in acute liver failure.

Abstract

Hyperammonemia has been associated with intracranial hypertension and mortality in patients with acute liver failure (ALF). We evaluated the effect of renal replacement therapy (RRT) on serum ammonia level and outcomes in ALF. This was a multicenter cohort study of consecutive ALF patients from the United States ALF Study Group registry between January 1998… (More)
