Uremic toxin removal by renal replacement therapies (RRTs) differs from the elimination of waste products by the native kidney in several ways. Specifically, uremic toxin removal by a RRT is achieved by a one-step membrane-based process, without the subsequent modifications that occur in the native kidney after a solute is filtered across the glomerular membrane. Another major difference relates to the continuous nature of native kidney function, which provides constant solute clearances and… CONTINUE READING
