Hemodialysis treatment of chronic renal failure was introduced in our department in 1964. In 1971, we began treating a number of patients with short dialysis, and since 1972, all hemodialysis treatment in our center has been short dialysis (SD). The results of treatment of 278 patients in chronic renal failure on SD from January 1, 1974, to December 31, 1984, are presented here.
