    Background: High cutoff hemofilters might support the restoration of immune homeostasis in systemic inflammation by depleting inflammatory mediators from the circulation.

    Methods: Interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha depletion was assessed in 30 sepsis patients with acute renal failure using continuous veno-venous hemodialysis with high cutoff versus standard filters (CVVHD-HCO vs. CVVHD-STD) over 48 h.

    Results: The transfer of IL-6 and IL-8 was significantly higher for CVVHD-HCO, as shown by increased IL-6 and IL-8 effluent concentrations. The mean plasma cytokine concentrations decreased over time for all cytokines without detectable differences for the treatment modalities. No transfer of albumin was observed for either of the filters. C-reactive protein remained stable over time and did not differ between CVVHD-HCO and CVVHD-STD, while procalcitonin decreased significantly over 48 h for both treatment modalities.

    Conclusion: CVVHD-HCO achieved enhanced removal of IL-6 and IL-8 as compared to CVVHD-STD, without differentially reducing plasma cytokine levels.

    Continuous veno-venous hemodialysis using high cutoff filters (HCO-CVVHD) is a promising technique, which may be effective to decrease the extremely high level of circulating myoglobin in patients with rhabdomyolysis (RM). Here, we report a patient with RM caused by heat stroke who was successfully treated by HCO-CVVHD. A male patient received HCO-CVVHD with 4 L/h dialysate for 5 days and then pre-dilution continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) at a dose of 4 L/h until recovery of renal function. Read More

    Department of Anesthesiology/Critical Care Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, PA, USA.
    Objective: To compare two forms of continuous renal replacement therapy, continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) vs. continuous venovenous hemodialysis (CVVHD), in terms of the removal of inflammatory mediators from the blood of patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome and acute renal failure.

    Design: Randomized crossover, clinical study. Read More

    Department of Nephrology, Charité, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany.
    Background: High-cutoff hemofilters are characterized by an increased effective pore size designed to facilitate the elimination of inflammatory mediators in sepsis. This study compares diffusive versus convective high-cutoff renal replacement therapy (RRT) in terms of cytokine clearance rates and effects on plasma protein levels.

    Methods: Twenty-four patients with sepsis-induced acute renal failure were studied. Read More
