Hemodialysis.com: What are the main findings of the study?
Dr. Maduell: The results of the ESHOL trial indicate that high efficiency postdilution OL-HDF reduces all-cause mortality versus conventional hemodialysis in prevalent patients.
Furthermore, the main causes of mortality, cardiovascular and infectious diseases, were significantly reduced by OL-HDF. The incidence rate of dialysis sessions complicated with hypotension episodes and all-cause hospitalization were lower in patients randomized to OL-HDF
