Final OS Anecdote

In 1992 when the data from Charra et al. [11] appeared showing very low mortality with long 6- to 8-hour treatment times, we reported the analysis of our 4-year experience in San Francisco with high flux dialysis [12] and UKM. We examined several of the large international databases and matched each database with respect to age and diabetes to our results with the results shown in figure 15. Certainly the unique data from Charra et al. [11] stand out, but the next lowest mortality rate was in San Francisco with by far the shortest mean treatment time of 2.3 h.
