The preliminary data of a small group of voluntary patients in daily short dialysis according to Buoncristiani are reported. After only one month of therapy an increase of haemoglobin and of haematocrit was obtained so that it was possible to reduce the EPO dose. The arterial pressure was better controlled with a smaller dose of antihypertensive drugs, facilitated in one case by a marked reduction of the body weight. The improvement in well-being and libido has been better than expected. The good results achieved encourage to go on with this experience, reported in the literature as an advantageous method both from the theoretic and clinical point of view, despite some difficulties that have still to be minimised.
