    A large percentage of patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) require continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) usually performed through a different venous access or by introducing a filter into the ECMO circuit. Here, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of including a CRRT...
