Evidenze cliniche

Study Name Study Design # of Patients Study Patient Group Date Key Findings
SAFE Multi-center, prospective, single arm 21 IDE for 510k 2003 JCF Extracellular and intravascular fluid volume excess can be safely achieved via peripherally inserted UF
Fluid removal endpoint achieved in 92% of patients
RAPID-HF Multi-center, prospective, RCT 40
20 UF/20 SC
Early UF vs Diuretics 2005 JACC Early use of UF in CHF patients resulted in weight loss and significant fluid removal
Dyspnea and CHF symptoms were significantly improved in the UF group at 48 hours
EUPHORIA Single-center, prospective, single-arm 20 Early UF in diuretic resistance 2005 JACC Early UF before IV diuretics may decrease length of stay and readmission
Average length of stay was 3.7 days
60% of patients were discharged in ≤ 3 days
UNLOAD Multi-center, prospective, RCT 200
100 UF/100 SC
UF vs SC 2007 JACC At 48 hours, weight and net fluid loss were greater in the UF group than IV diuretics
At 90-days, UF group had fewer patients rehospitalized for heart failure, heart failure rehospitalization days per patient, and unscheduled visits than IV diuretics
CARRESS-HF Multi-center, prospective, RCT 188
94 UF/94 SC
UF vs SC patients with cardiorenal syndrome 2012 NEJM Stepped pharmacological therapy algorithm was superior to a strategy of ultrafiltration for the preservation of renal function at 96 hours, with a similar amount of weight loss with the two approaches
AVOID-HF Multi-center, prospective, RCT 224
110 UF/114 SC (810 planned)
UF vs SC to evaluate readmissions 2016 JACC-HF Ultrafiltration group trended towards a longer time to first HF event within 90 days and fewer HF and cardiovascular events

UF = Ultrafiltration
