Abstract

AFBF is an hemodiafiltration which utilizes a buffer-free dialysate and hypertonic sodium bicarbonate as replacement fluid (1). It allows to overcome the side effects of acetate-dialysis as well as the clinical and technical problems of bicarbonate-dialysis such as bacterial contamination of dialysate and toilsome maintenance. The aim of this study is to evaluate the “adequacy” of AFBF as regards depuration and electrolytes balance.
