The management of uremia due to irreversible terminal chronic glomerulonephritis in three young adults is described. All are treated by weekly hemodialysis, and all have Scribner plastic arteriovenous shunts inserted into the forearm. The durations of treatment were 9 months, 6 months, and 3 months. The endogenous creatinine clearance is less than 2.5 ml/min in each patient. Typical values in plasma chemistry at the beginning and end of dialysis are: creatinine, 14 mg to 6 mg/100 ml; phosphorus, 11 mg to 6 mg/100 ml; uric acid, 9 mg to 4 mg/100 ml; urea nitrogen, 120 mg to 40 mg/100 ml.
