Abstract [en]

Introduction: Microbubbles of air may enter into patients during conventional hemodialysis, infusions of fluids, or by injections. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the air that enters the patient during hemodialysis can be detected in the lungs after death, and if so, whether this may be related to tissue damage. Methods: The material consisted of lung tissue from five chronic hemodialysis patients who died either during (two) or after hemodialysis (range 10 min from start until 3333 min after the last hemodialysis session); as reference group tissue was taken from seven patients who died due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The lung tissue was investigated by microscopy after autopsy using a fluorescein-marked polyclonal antibody against fibrinogen as a marker for clots preformed before death. Results: All five hemodialysis patients had microbubbles of air in the lung tissue, whereas two of seven amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients had such findings (Fisher's test p = 0.0278, relative risk = 3.5, confidence interval: 1.08-11.3). There were more microbubbles of air/10 randomly investigated microscopic fields of tissue in the hemodialysis patients than the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients (Student's test, p < 0.05). All hemodialysis patients had a medium graded extent of pulmonary fibrosis that was not found in any of the ALS patients. The microbubbles of air were surrounded by fibrin as a sign of development of clots around the air bubbles while the patients were still alive. Conclusion: Exposure to microbubbles of air during various treatments such as hemodialysis may result in microemboli. Future studies should clarify whether microbubbles of air contribute to tissue scarring. We suggest preventive measures against the exposure to microbubbles of air during especially repeated exposures such as hemodialysis.
