Continuous therapy and hemodialysis are specials kinds of renal replacement therapies, they have supported patients with chronic and acute renal diseases, and have allowed decreased morbimortality and improved quality of life in these population of patients. In the last 20 years have been described technological advances in this field, we have new hemodialysis machines and devices: filters, lines and have been showed new filters with human proximal tubular cells, from deceased donor kidneys not suitable for transplantation because of excessive fibrosis, they allow better ultrafiltration rates and improve clearance of toxins, cytokines and electrolytes. In spite of the fact, technological advances, clinical research indicates that the mortality is high in patients with acute renal failure and continuous therapy and when two modalities of dialytic treatment: hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration were compared in randomized studies, the mortality was similar in both groups and only recovery time in days, volume control and improved in clearance of cytokines were better in hemodiafiltration.

Key words: Hemodialysis, continuous therapy and hemodiafiltration.
