    Background. Ionic dialysance was recently introduced as a means to assess Kt/V (KIDt/V). With this method, urea distribution volume (V) has to be estimated. The primary aim of the present study was to assess the agreement between equilibrated Kt/V assessed by urea kinetic modelling (eKt/V) with...

    While hemodialysis therapy in its present form is capable of sustaining life, dialysis patients are not metabolically normal and we are unable to say what technical factors contribute adequate therapy.

    Background. We examined the sensitivity of three different equivalent clearances to the spacing of haemodialysis treatments as well as to frequency. One would expect that a well-spaced schedule would be beneficial, and an optimal clearance measure should reflect this.
