Abstract

Dialysis disequilibrium due to cerebral oedema still causes a significant degree of both morbidity and mortality. We discuss the management of 5 such cases and demonstrate the improved stability during treatment with continuous veno-venous haemofiltration. This may be due to the improved osmotic stability during haemofiltration with a resultant decrease in the osmotic gradient across the blood-brain barrier.
