Selective plasma exchange with dialysis is a blood purification therapy in which simple plasma exchange is performed using a selective membrane plasma separator while the dialysate flows out of the hollow fibers. To evaluate the effect of plasma exchange with dialysis, biochemical examination of the blood, for example, the oxidative stress regulation system and interleukin 18 levels, was performed in patients with acute liver failure. We studied four patients with acute liver failure in whom… CONTINUE READING
