The first successful application of hemodialysis to the long-term treatment of chronic renal failure was accomplished in 1960 by Scribner, Buri, Caner, Hegstrom, and Burnell (1) in Seattle. After their publication, there appeared somewhat less enthusiastic reports of the treatment of chronic renal failure by this technique (2-4). Since its inception, however, a number of technical and conceptual improvements have enhanced the over-all success (5-8), and more recently a number of centers have been able to achieve results similar to those obtained in Seattle (9-10). Scribner's present results include three patients who have been successfully maintained for 4 years. The
