Two patients with renal failure developed N-acetylprocainamide toxicity while receiving procainamide. Treatment consisted of continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration in one and hemodialysis followed by continuous arteriovenous hemodiafiltration in the other. The efficacy of these treatments was compared with the efficacy of three-times-weekly hemodialysis as used in two patients on chronic hemodialysis who had elevated N-acetylprocainamide levels. Continuous methods produced a more rapid reduction in N-acetylprocainamide levels than intermittent hemodialysis.
