After the liberation papers appeared in some medical journals on other ways of treating renal patients. Kolff did not ignore them, but he applied these methods too, and compared the results with those of dialysis with the artificial kidney. He was interested primarily in the best way to treat patients with renal disease, not necessarily with a method he had developed himself.
