A number of membrane bioartificial devices have been proposed for liver support. However, their design does not yet ensure the successful treatment of acute liver insufficiency. In this paper, the Author reviews the limitations of the mass transport phenomena to the performance of a membrane bioartificial liver support device. First of all the requirements that an optimal membrane bioartificial liver support device has to meet for the therapy to be effective are presented. On these grounds, the… CONTINUE READING
