Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1: Single pass albumin dialysis
Patients entered in the pilot study.
Device: Single pass albumin dialysis
6 hours sessions of albumin dialysis.
Other Name: Single pass albumin dialysis

Detailed Description:

Albumin dialysis has beneficial effects in patients with acute on chronic liver failure. However, current devices are complex and costly. The aim of this study is to determine whether a simplified device of albumin dialysis also has beneficial effects.
