  Purpose

Background:

A concentrate for bicarbonate haemodialysis acidified with citrate instead of acetate has been marketed in the recent years. The small amount of citrate used (one-fifth of the concentration adopted in regional anticoagulation) protects against intradialyser clotting, minimally affecting the calcium concentration. The aim of this study is to compare the impact of a citrate- and acetate-based dialysate on systemic haemodynamics, coagulation, acid-base status, calcium balance and dialysis efficiency.

Methods:

In 25 patients, 375 dialysis sessions, we will compare acetate (A) with citrate dialysate with (C+) or without (C) calcium supplementation (0.25mmol/L) in a randomized single blind cross-over study. Systemic haemodynamics will be evaluated using pulse wave analysis systems. Coagulation, acid-base status, calcium balance and dialysis efficiency will be assessed using standard biochemical markers.
