PURPOSE: Hemodiafiltration reinfusion (HFR) treatment is a dialysis technique that uses the endogenous reinfusion fluid and performs, simultaneously and separately, the three mechanisms of extracorporal depuration: diffusion, convection and adsorption. This study aimed to evaluate clinical and biochemical data of a group of six patients submitted to a dialytic HFR method for >6 months. METHODS: Six patients with a mean age of 53.8 +/- 11 yrs (five males, one female), treated with standard bicarbonate dialysis for a mean of 79.2 months, underwent HFR for a mean period of 14.9 +/- 6 months. Filters used were: a) in all patients polysulfone with 0.7 m2 of surface for the convection; b) polysulfone with 1.7 m2 in one patient, and modified cellulose with 2.0 m2 in five patients for diffusion; c) hydrophobic interaction resin and uncovered mineral carbon 240 mL for the adsorption. For all patients dialysis duration was 240 min and the amount of reinfusion fluid was 2.5 L/h as a mean, calculated according to blood flow and hematocrit (Hct), keeping a filtration fraction
