    Abstract

    Liver-kidney transplantation in patients with primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) and a high systemic oxalate load is often complicated by oxalate deposition in the renal allograft and loss of renal function. Intensive pre- and post-operative haemodialysis (HD) cannot completely prevent rises in plasma oxalate levels during transplantation because of rebound from saturated oxalate stores. Continuous renal replacement therapy may overcome this problem. In two PH1 patients with extensive oxalate accumulation, we found that intra-operative continuous venovenous haemodiafiltration effectively cleared oxalate and kept oxalate at relatively low levels following preoperative HD.
