Since August 1964, 21 patients have been admitted to the Renal Dialysis Center, VA Hospital, Iowa City. Four patients have died, 3 during the first year of the program. Three patients have been transferred elsewhere for renal transplantation. Of the remaining 14, 9 are fully rehabilitated, while in 5, rehabilitation has been incomplete due to a combination of medical and social factors. With twice weekly, 12-hr treatment on the modified Kiil dialyzer, predialysis serum creatinine has averaged 15 mg/100 ml (10.4 to 20.7) and predialysis blood urea nitrogen, 79 mg/100 ml (60 to 106).
