This study evaluated the potential adverse effects associated with exposure to calcium carbonate precipitate in Accusol 35 Solution (Accusol 35) during continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH).
CVVH performed on anesthetized dogs for 6 hours, using Accusol 35 containing visible and sub-visible particles 36-times higher than the maximum concentration specified in the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), resulted in no adverse effects on cardiovasular parameters, blood gases and electrolytes, and lung histology, as compared with Accusol 35 containing no visible particles and sub-visible particles that were within EP specification.
