AIMS Acute kidney injury (AKI) commonly occurs in critically ill patients with sepsis and is associated with poor outcomes. Unfortunately, the ideal mode of renal replacement therapy remains unknown. Because both higher doses of dialysis and hemofiltration have been associated with improved survival, we postulated that adding hemofiltration to the diffusive clearance achieved by sustained low-efficiency daily dialysis (SLEDD-f) would provide a survival advantage over SLEDD.
