Contenuto The European Renal Best Practice (ERBP) Advisory Board recently decided to follow up existing guidelines, and to publish position statements when new evidence would necessitate a change in the existing guideline [1].The purpose of this document is to provide guidance on the interpretation and relevancy of the current European Best Practice Guideline (EBPG) on dialysis strategy [2], in the light of the recently published Membrane Permeability Outcome (MPO) study [3].This position statement is intended to be considered in conjunction with the current guideline. It does not replace the guideline as we do not include a new systematic reviewof the literature. The MPOstudy specifically focused on the question whether the use of a high-, compared to a low-flux dialyser membrane, would have a measurable effect on survival.
