Comments on Haemodialysis

Abstract

It is hard to compete in the modern discussion of unconventional haemodialysis with comments on just conventional dialysis. But knowing that in the last 20 years the success of the conventional artificial kidney in preserving the lives of thousands of people has attracted world-wide attention (Parsons et al., 1971; NIAMD registry, 1971), and that presently 98% of our dialysis treatment throughout the world is done by conventional dialysis technique, encourage us to make a few comments on this method, which in principle has not changed since the time of Rowntree and Turner (1912).
