The goal of the present study is the comparison of different dialysis strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. Patients are treated with either continuous dialysis or hemofiltration. Outcome measures are death, restitution of renal function, days on ICU, hemodynamic stability, dialysis efficiency.
The goal of the present study is the comparison of different renal replacement strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. In a prospectively randomized clinical study patients are treated with either continuous dialysis (SLED) or continuous hemofiltration (CVVHD). 200 patients should be included in the study (n=100 each). The primary outcome is death at ICU, secondary outcome measures are restitution of renal function, days on ICU, hemodynamic stability, dialysis efficiency.

Acute kidney injury is more frequent and the mortality rate would be as high as 50-60% when the renal replacement therapy was needed. Many studies about the timing of start and discontinua...

Renal replacement therapy is vital for patients with chronic renal failure. Each type of renal replacement therapy has its own characteristics, and patients select it according on their living environ...
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is recommended as first-line renal replacement therapy for end-stage renal disease. Combined therapy with PD and hemodialysis (HD) is an option for patients on PD with inadequ...
Peritoneal dialysis has been used in the treatment of end-stage renal disease for a long time. The development of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) has achieved an acceptable device of ...
End-stage renal disease patients with cirrhosis represent a therapeutic dilemma, with several difficulties associated with hemodialysis as a renal replacement therapy modality. Peritoneal dialysis is ...
Treatment of multiple organ failure frequently requires enhanced hemodynamic monitoring. When renal replacement is indicated, it remains unclear whether transpulmonary thermodilution (TPTD) measuremen...
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
