The list of indications corresponds to the experience of over 10000 individual treatments, multicenter trials and single-center Experiences of recent years.


Albumin Dialysis Methods are used in everyday practice since more than 20 years.

In studies showed how difficult it is to achieve the desired results in heterogeneous populations of many critically ill patients.

This challenge to the albumin dialysis has provided and ensured in many situations for an improvement of the often hopeless disease processes.

In summary it can be stated, therefore:

--> It is important to start on time with a liver dialysis!

Aside from the following groups of indications, it is therefore also important to know the start criteria.

The following indication groups has been successfully delivered to the albumin dialysis:


Acute decompensation of chronic hepatic failure (AoCHF)


Acute/Fulminant hepatic failure (AHF)


Primary Dys- or Non-function of a liver graft


Hepatic dysfunction after extended hepato-biliary-surgery


Pruritus with chronic Cholestatic Syndroms


Intoxications (mushrooms, drugs, etc.)

These indications are confirmed by results of various albumin dialysis studies of the past 20 years. A corresponding list of references can be obtained from HepaNet. Uncontrolled data suggest that patients with even moderate paraclinical values but increasing clinic with albumin dialysis therapy have a better prognosis. Through a more timely use of albumin dialysis therapy may potentially prevent further deterioration in the condition of the patient, increases the positive effects and the number of treatments needed to be reduced.

The indications for use of albumin dialysis are subject to future changes permanent by growing experience with a variety of conditions and stages. If today most terminal stages of various liver diseases are treated on an inpatient, outpatient treatment at earlier stages can possibly show better success tomorrow.
