Dialysis Unplugged

Abstract:
Conventional dialysis, in which a patient's blood is pumped through an external filter to drain out accumulating toxins, is far from ideal ... Nanotechnology could offer an alternative, according to nephrologist William Fissell at the University of Michigan. He and colleagues are working on nano-pore membranes that could enable dialysis to be miniaturized into implantable devices that provide round-the-clock clearance of toxins, untethering dialysis patients from bulky pumps and clinics. "This is a fundamentally liberating technology," says Fissell.
