The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of direct hemoperfusion using a Polymyxin B (PMX) immobilized fiber column in septic patients with chronic renal failure after emergency surgery. Twenty-four renal failure patients, including 19 dialysis patients, with sepsis or septic shock were treated with direct hemoperfusion after emergency surgery. The 24 consecutive patients included nine with necrotic enterocolitis, six with colonic perforation due to diverticulitis, three with… CONTINUE READING
