INTRODUCTION: The management of active bleeding with haemodinamic lability in the paediatric trauma patient is difficult and generally leads to damage control surgery. Vascular Interventional Radiology (VIR) techniques are useful for the diagnosis as for the definitive treatment. AIM: The aim of our study was to describe our experience and evaluate effectiveness of VIR in the management of the paediatric trauma patient with active bleeding signs. METHODS: Retrospective analysis (2003-2014) of politraumatic patients who showed contrast blush on computed tomography and then treated by VIR techniques...

Atherosclerosis is an important predictor of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is associated with a wide inflammatory response. The aim of this study is to evaluate in vitro how different membranes can remove mediators associated with this pathology in a closed loop dialysis model. We performed experimental hemofiltration in vitro using three different membrane materials. Human plasma was preliminarily incubated with various inflammatory mediators and filtered in a closed loop circulation model for 240 min...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: High dose continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) is a continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) used frequently inpatients with burns. However, antibiotic dosing is based on inference from studies assessing substantially different methods of CRRT. To address this knowledge gap for imipenem/cilastatin (I-C) we evaluated the systemic and extracorporeal clearances (CL) of I-C in patients with burns undergoing high dose CVVH. DESIGN: Prospective clinical pharmacokinetic study...

Xingui Dai, Tao Li, Zhenhua Zeng, Chunlai Fu, Shengbiao Wang, Yeping Cai, Zhongqing Chen
BACKGROUND: It is known that continuous venonenous hemofiltration (CVVH) does not affect the plasma level of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (pNGAL) in acute kidney injury (AKI) patients. However, because of the unique pathophysiology underlying AKI caused by sepsis, the effect of CVVH on pNGAL in this clinical setting is less certain. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of CVVH on pNGAL in sepsis-induced AKI patients. METHODS: Between August 1, 2014, and December 31, 2014, 42 patients with sepsis-induced AKI underwent CVVH in the general intensive care unit of our institution and were consecutively enrolled in this study...

Metabolic disorders and fluid overload are indications of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) including continuous venovenous hemofiltration in patients on ECMO.Direct connection of CRRT machine to the ECMO circuit provides many advantages. Nevertheless, because pressures in CRRT lines relate to ECMO blood flow, high ECMO blood flow may be associated with high pressures in CRRT lines. Thus, management of CRRT pressure lines becomes challenging. We evaluated a protocol for managing high CRRT pressures...

BACKGROUND: The excessive correction of acute hypernatremia is not known to be harmful. This study aimed to evaluate whether a reduction rate of serum sodium (RRSeNa) > 1mEq/L/hour in acute severe hypernatremia is an independent risk factor for mortality in critically ill patients undergoing continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For this retrospective study, we reviewed records of 75 critically ill patients undergoing CVVH treatment for acute severe hypernatremia between March 2011 and March 2015...

A promising approach to facilitate protective mechanical ventilation is the use of extracorporeal CO2 removal techniques. Several strategies based on membrane gas exchangers have been developed. However, these techniques are still poorly available. The goal of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of THAM infusion coupled to hemofiltration for the management of hypercapnic acidosis. A severe respiratory acidosis was induced in seven anesthetized pigs. Five of them were treated with THAM 8-mmol·kg(-1)·h(-1) coupled to hemofiltration (THAM+HF group) at 100 mL·kg(-1)·h(-1)...
