New meta-analysis demonstrates that high-flux haemodialysis may reduce cardiovascular mortality by 17% compared with low-flux haemodialysis

Cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular mortality rates for people commencing haemodialysis are nearly 30 to 50 times higher than for the general population. It has been suggested that removal of larger solutes across high-flux haemodialysis membranes may better reflect normal kidney function and improve cardiovascular outcomes versus low-flux haemodialysis. Here we report results from a meta-analysis investigating this hypothesis.
