Acute renal failure is a serious illness from both the medical and social points of view. Its morality rate is high, it affects mostly young and healthy people and if patients survive the acute stage, the majority recover1,2. Modern methods of therapy are so effective that patients may die of an underlying disease or mortal injuries, but he should not die of renal failure and its complications. The treatment of patients with acute renal failure is a complex of diverse methods of therapy. Dialysis is only one of them.
