The history of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is marked by technological advances linked to improvements in the knowledge of the mechanisms and kinetics of extracorporeal removal of solutes, and the pathophysiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) and other critical illnesses. In the present article, we review the main steps in the history of CRRT, from the discovery of continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration to its evolution into the current treatments and its early use in the treatment of AKI, to the novel sequential extracorporeal therapy. Beyond the technological advances, we describe the development of new medical specialties and a shared nomenclature to support clinicians and researchers in the broad and still evolving field of CRRT.

Abstract

The history of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is marked by technological advances linked to improvements in the knowledge of the mechanisms and kinetics of extracorporeal removal of solutes, and the pathophysiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) and other critical illnesses. In the present article, we review the main steps in the history of CRRT, from the discovery of continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration to its evolution into the current treatments and its early use in the treatment of AKI, to the novel sequential extracorporeal therapy. Beyond the technological advances, we describe the development of new medical specialties and a shared nomenclature to support clinicians and researchers in the broad and still evolving field of CRRT.
