Dialyzer for achieving balance between elimination and retention
xevonta allows for efficient elimination of middle molecules and other uremic toxins while limiting the loss of serum albumin to 1.1±0.2g/ session. This is even the case with our largest 2.3m² surface-area dialyzer, when used under post-dilution HDF conditions using high convective volumes.1
Importance of serum albumin
- Marker for nutritional and inflammatory status of maintenance for dialysis patients2
- Strong predictor for mortality3
