Summary of "Influence of the vascular access punction needle caliber in the efficacy of online hemodiafiltration."

Higher infusion volumes (IV) in online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) are associated with better survival. The IV depends mainly on blood flow (Qb). The objectives of our study were to evaluate the influence of the caliber of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) puncture needles on the total convective volume and other characteristics of OL-HDF, and to investigate possible adverse effects.
