Large cohort studies suggest that high convective volumes associated with online hemodiafiltration may reduce the risk of mortality/morbidity compared to optimal high-flux hemodialysis. By contrast, intradialytic tolerance is not well studied. The aim of the FRENCHIE (French Convective versus Hemodialysis in Elderly) study was to compare high-flux hemodialysis and online hemodiafiltration in terms of intradialytic tolerance. In this prospective, open-label randomized controlled trial, 381 elderly chronic hemodialysis patients (over age 65) were randomly assigned in a one-to-one ratio to either high-flux hemodialysis or online hemodiafiltration...

High-volume online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) has been associated with improved patient survival compared to conventional hemodialysis in recent trials, where the importance of convective volume (CV) in this benefit is noted. The purpose of this study was to determine the corporal composition parameters influencing the efficacy of CV in the removal of different molecular weight (MW) molecules. Demographic data, corporal composition parameters with bioimpedance spectroscopy, dialysis features and the reduction rates of different MW molecules in a four-hour OL-HDF session were collected in 61 patients...

BACKGROUND: The choice between hemodiafiltration (HDF) or high-flux hemodialysis (HD) to treat end-stage kidney disease remains a matter of debate. The duration of recovery time after treatment has been associated with mortality, affects quality of life, and may therefore be important in informing patient choice. We aimed to establish whether recovery time is influenced by treatment with HDF or HD. STUDY DESIGN: Randomized patient-blinded crossover trial. SETTINGS & PARTICIPANTS: 100 patients with end-stage kidney disease were enrolled from 2 satellite dialysis units in Glasgow, United Kingdom...

Several uremic toxins have been identified and related to higher rates of morbidity and mortality in dialysis patients. Bisphenol A (BPA) accumulates in patients with chronic kidney disease. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the usefulness of online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) in reducing BPA levels. Thirty stable hemodialysis patients were selected to participate in this paired study. During three periods of 3 weeks each, patients were switched from high-flux hemodialysis (HF-HD) to OL-HDF, and back to HF-HD...

Citrate dialysate has been developed for few years to replace acetate and HCl concentrates. In Online Postdilution Hemodiafiltration (OL-POST-HDF), several issues are remaining concerning the possibility of stopping anticoagulation during sessions and the side effects of citrate solutions on calcium metabolism. This 1-year monocentric retrospective study included all patients exposed to citrate in OL-POST-HDF with nadroparin decrease for more than one month. Clotting events, serum calcium, PTH, hemoglobin, CRP, depuration parameters, and treatments administrated were recorded for analysis...

INTRODUCTION: The recent analysis of 4 randomized controlled trials has confirmed the lower mortality risk for postdilution online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) compared to hemodialysis, and above all for patients with the highest delivered body surface area standardized convective volume (CV/BSA >23 L/1.73 m²/session). Since the impact of the dialyzers used in these trials has never been studied, we retrospectively analyzed clinical tests carried out with 19 commonly used dialyzers...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing conventional hemodialysis (C-HD) present a greater immuno-inflammatory state probably related to uremia, sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation and /or membrane bioincompatibility, which could improve with a technique-switching to online hemodiafiltration (OL-HD). The antigen-independent pathway activation of this modified immunologic state turns dendritic cells (DC) into an accurate cell model to study these patients. The aim of this study is to further evaluate the immune-inflammatory state of patients in C-HD assessed by DC maturation...

BACKGROUND: Clinical studies suggest that hemodiafiltration (HDF) may lead to better clinical outcomes than high-flux hemodialysis (HF-HD), but concerns have been raised about the cost-effectiveness of HDF versus HF-HD. Aim of this study was to investigate whether clinical benefits, in terms of longer survival and better health-related quality of life, are worth the possibly higher costs of HDF compared to HF-HD. METHODS: The analysis comprised a simulation based on the combined results of previous published studies, with the following steps: 1) estimation of the survival function of HF-HD patients from a clinical trial and of HDF patients using the risk reduction estimated in a meta-analysis; 2) simulation of the survival of the same sample of patients as if allocated to HF-HD or HDF using three-state Markov models; and 3) application of state-specific health-related quality of life coefficients and differential costs derived from the literature...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients exhibit high levels of genetic damage. Part of this genetic damage is supposed to be caused by the hemodialysis (HD) therapy. Different and more efficient HD procedures could reduce the genetic damage and improve health status of CKD patients. In the present study, we analyzed if changing to online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) has a beneficial effect on the levels of genetic damage. The levels of genetic damage (DNA breaks and oxidatively damaged DNA) were analyzed in peripheral blood lymphocytes by using the comet assay...

OBJECTIVES: Opioids are the preferred analgesic drugs to treat severe chronic pain conditions among dialysis patients; however, knowledge about their dialyzability features is limited. Oxycodone is increasingly used for the treatment of chronic pain conditions as oral controlled release (CR) tablets; however, evidence about this drug and its metabolites' dialyzability is lacking. METHODS: We assessed, during 4-hour dialysis sessions, the effect of standard hemodialysis (HD) and online hemodiafiltration (HDF) methods on the plasma concentration of oxycodone and its metabolites in n = 20 chronic pain patients with end-stage renal disease who were stably treated with oral CR oxycodone...

The mortality rate of patients on maintenance dialysis remains alarmingly high, at approximately 15-20 % per year. Increasing dialyzer urea clearance has not been shown to improve survival and hence interest has shifted towards convective therapies, such as hemodiafiltration (HDF) which can remove middle molecular weight uremic toxins, which have been suggested to increase mortality in patients with end-stage kidney disease. During the last few years, four large prospective randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have been conducted in different European countries to compare survival outcomes in prevalent patients receiving conventional hemodialysis with online post-dilution HDF (OL HDF)...

Conventional hemodialysis, which is based on the diffusive transport of solutes, is the most widely used renal replacement therapy. It effectively removes small solutes such as urea and corrects fluid, electrolyte and acid-base imbalance. However, solute diffusion coefficients decreased rapidly as molecular size increased. Because of this, middle and large molecules are not removed effectively and clinical problem such as dialysis amyloidosis might occur. Online hemodiafiltration which is combined by diffusive and convective therapies can overcome such problems by removing effectively middle and large solutes...

Recent reports suggest a survival advantage for dialysis patients treated by postdilutional online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) who achieve higher volume convective exchanges. As such, the factors associated with achieving higher convective volume exchange were determined. The convective exchange volumes during the midweek OL-HDF session in a cohort of 653 patients with corresponding bio-impedance measurements of volume status and sessional electronic records were audited. Mean patient age was 64.9 ± 14...

Hemodiafiltration with endogenous reinfusion (HFR) after ultrafiltrate passage through a resin cartridge combines adsorption, convection, and diffusion. Our prospective single-center crossover study compared HFR and online-hemodiafiltration (OLHDF) effects on two uremic toxins and 13 inflammatory, endothelial status, or oxidative stress markers. After an 8-week run-in period of high-flux hemodialysis, 17 eligible stable dialysis patients (median age 65 years, 10 male) without overt clinical inflammation were scheduled for four 8-week periods in the sequence: HFR/OLHDF/HFR/OLHDF...

Endothelial dysfunction and chronic inflammatory process are prevalent in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on maintenance hemodialysis (HD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the acute and short-term effects of online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) versus conventional HD on endothelial function and inflammation. A prospective, randomized, crossover trial. Twenty stable ESRD patients undergoing chronic HD treatments were randomly assigned with a 1:1 ratio to conventional HD and to OL-HDF both for 2 weeks (either HD followed by OL-HDF or OL-HDF followed by HD)...

The aim of this work was to evaluate the predictors of mortality in a group of end-stage kidney disease (ESRD) patients under dialysis, by performing a three-year follow-up study. From the 236 patients included in this study, 54 patients died during the three-year follow-up period. Our data showed that the risk of death was higher in patients presenting lower levels of mean cell hemoglobin concentration, transferrin, and albumin. Our study showed that poor nutritional status and an inflammatory-induced iron depleted erythropoiesis are important factors for mortality in these patients...

UNLABELLED: Dialysis biofeedback in hemodiafiltration with online regeneration of ultrafiltrate (HFR) could help to improve arterial hypertension. We evaluated the impact of isonatric HFR (HFR-iso) on hypertension control compared to conventional HFR. Forty-seven hemodialysis patients were included and randomized (ratio 2/1) HFR-iso versus HFR during 24 dialysis sessions. In the HFR-iso group (32 patients, 768 dialysis sessions), the predialytic systolic blood pressure (BP) decreased from S1 to S24 of 9 ± 20 mm Hg and increased of 5 ± 24 mm Hg in the HFR group (15 patients, 360 dialysis sessions), variation that differed between the 2 groups (x0394;S1-S24, p = 0...

INTRODUCTION: In post-dilution online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF), the only recommendation concerning the dialysate, or dialysis fluid, refers to its purity. No study has yet determined whether using a high dialysate flow (Qd) is useful for increasing Kt or ultrafiltration-infusion volume. OBJECTIVE: Study the influence of Qd on Kt and on infusion volume in OL-HDF. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was a prospective crossover study. There were 37 patients to whom 6 sessions of OL-HDF were administered at 3 different Qds: 500, 600 and 700ml/min...

The reduction of blood volume below a critical threshold is assumed to trigger intradialytic morbid events (IME). Recently, we presented a simple method to determine the absolute blood volume during routine hemodialysis (HD) carried out without blood sampling and without injection of dyes or radiolabeled markers. Such information could be used to detect excessive volume reduction during HD and to prevent IME. Therefore, we performed a pilot study in IME-prone patients to identify the absolute blood volume at which they developed clinical symptoms...
