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.

Removal of Procalcitonin and Selected Cytokines during Continuous Veno-Venous Hemodialysis Using High Cutoff Hemofilters in Patients with Sepsis and Acute Kidney Injury.

Blood Purif 2018 27;46(2):153-159. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

Department of Internal Diseases, Nephrology and Dialysis, Military Institute of Medicine, Warsaw, Poland.

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD) using high cutoff (HCO) hemofilters on the removal of procalcitonin (PCT), and other inflammatory markers in the treatment of patients during septic shock with acute kidney injury (AKI).

Materials And Methods: Thirty-six patients with septic shock and AKI were included in the study. Before and after the 24-h HCO-CVVHD, PCT, native C-reactive protein (CRP) and cytokines (interleukin-1β, interleukin-6, interleukin-12, interleukin-17, tumor necrosis factor-α) in serum and effluent were assessed.

Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Montpellier University Hospital, Montpellier, France.

Aims: High cut-off (HCO) continuous veno-venous hemodialysis (CVVHD) was compared to high-flux membrane (HFM) continuous veno-venous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF) in intensive care unit (ICU) acute kidney injury (AKI) in terms of efficiency, hemodynamic tolerance, medium-sized molecules removal, albumin loss, and inflammatory system activation.

Methods: In a prospective cross-over randomized study, 10 AKI patients underwent successively HCO (Ultraflux EmiC2: β2-microglobulin [β2M] sieving coefficient [SC]: 0.9) CVVHD and HFM (Ultraflux AV1000S: β2M SC: 0. Read More

Clearance of myoglobin by high cutoff continuous veno-venous hemodialysis in a patient with rhabdomyolysis: a case report.

Hemodial Int 2015 Jan 27;19(1):135-40. Epub 2014 Apr 27.

National Clinical Research Center of Kidney Diseases, Jinling Hospital, Nanjing University School of Medicine, Nanjing, China.

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
