Our goal at Achilleion Nephrology Center is to provide high quality hemodialysis treatment. Therefore we exclusively use high quality certified filters that in combination with our modern equipment guarantee the best possible results for your treatment.
  • HIGH QUALITY DIALYZERS
  • CLASSIC HEMODIALYSIS (HD)
  • HEMODIAFILTRATION (HDF)
  • ON-LINE HEMODIAFILTRATION (HDF)
  • HIGH QUALITY DIALYZERS

    Besides form and technique, an important aspect of HD is the dialyzer and especially the filter (membrane). A high-flux synthetic dialyzer has a membrane that allows low and middle molecular weight uremic toxins to pass through and therefore better clearance is achieved.

  • CLASSIC HEMODIALYSIS (HD)

    Hemodialysis is a renal replacement therapy in patients with end-stage renal disease. It is based on the mechanism of diffusion and removes from the patient’s body low molecular weight uremic toxins and excessive fluids. HD sessions occur thrice weekly, 4 hours each time. In every HD session, the patient’s blood is transferred through special tubes to the HD dialyzer (membrane) where the uremic toxins are removed and then it returns to the patient’s body.

  • HEMODIAFILTRATION (HDF)

    HDF is a renal replacement therapy form based on combination of diffusion and convection. It is actually a combination of classic HD and hemofiltration. Compared to standard, classic HD, HDF can remove both low and middle molecular weight toxins and therefore reduces the chronic inflammatory status of HD patients. Several studies report that with HDF, patients might also live longer. In order to maintain volume control, during HDF, a large amount of ultrapure dialysate is infused back to the patient. The volume of the infused dialysate is the most significant factor affecting the dialysis adequacy of the method.

  • ON-LINE HEMODIAFILTRATION (HDF)

    During ON-LINE HDF session, ultrapure, highly purified, dialysis fluid is produced and infused to the patient. Patients with hypotension, cardiovascular disease, heart failure, hyperphosphatemia, young and high BMI adults are significantly benefitted by ON-LINE HDF. The beneficiary effects of this dialysis form are:preservation of hemodynamic stability, better anemia management, protection of heart and residual renal function.
