Beneficial effects of nocturnal hemodialysis in a hemodynamically unstable patient with AL-amyloidosis
Hemodialysis International, 06/21/2012
Trigka K et al. – The authors present a patient with primary systemic AL–amyloidosis, who stabilized hemodynamically on nocturnal hemodialysis (NHD). The NHD allowed a significant reduction in ultrafiltration rates which likely underlies the procedural tolerability. It also provided an increase in urea clearance, better control of serum phosphorus levels without the use of any binders, and normalization of blood pressure despite the discontinuation of all antihypertensive agents.
