New study on Online Haemodiafiltration substantiates existing evidence on patient survival
The new Catalonian High Volume Online Haemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) study shows that High Volume OL-HDF therapy improves patients’ survival rate. With a 30% reduction of all-cause mortality and 33% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality patients should benefit from High Volume Online HDF.
