[Clinical and laboratory evaluation of the efficiency of chronic hemodialysis treatment using acidosuccinate in patients with terminal renal failure].

[Article in Russian]



To evaluate the efficiency of using a succinate-containing dialysis solution (SCDS) in terminal renal failure patients treated with chronic hemodialysis (CHD).


Ninety patients from two hemodialysis units took part in the crossover study and were allocated to 2 groups. For 6 months, study group patients received CHD using SCDS and control group patients had CHD with a standard bicarbonate dialysis solution after 3-month washout period followed by decussation. The time course of changes in blood biochemical parameters, 24-hour ECG monitoring data, and quality of life indicators were estimated in the patients.


After using acidosuccinate during hemodialysis, there was a significant reduction in the predialysis serum level of inorganic phosphate, a calcium phosphate product, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, urea, and aldosterone as compared to the control group. The blood concentration of total protein was also increased. After 6-month administration of acidosuccinate, the patients showed reductions in systolic blood pressure, heart rate, and the frequency and duration of ST-segment depression episodes. There were positive changes in the quality of life of patients according to the KDQOL-SF questionnaire.


The use of SCDS in patients with CHD causes positive changes in a number of laboratory parameters and improves the physical and general status, and quality of life of patients.
