  • The exposure of patients to the plasticizer di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubes and bags during dialysis has been investigated. In vitro studies of the migration of DEHP from hemodialysis tubes into plasma revealed a migration coefficient of 7.7 micrograms/ml/h. An artificial kidney did not influence the plasma concentration of DEHP. The calculated exposure from a single hemodialysis can be as much as the total annual exposure using continuous ambulatory… CONTINUE READING
