Aim: The aim of the study was to develop an optical method for the estimation of creatinine (Cr) removal during dialysis using UV-absorbance. Material and methods: 29 hemodialysis patients on chronic 3-times-a-week hemodialysis were studied in 6 separate studies. Double-beam pectrophotometer was used for the determination of UV-absorbance in the collected spent dialysate samples. A single wavelength (SW) and a multi-wavelength (MW) model were developed using stepwise regression utilizing Cr values from the laboratory as the dependent parameter. The reduction ratio (RR) and total removed Cr (TRCr) were estimated. Results: For blood-Cr RRb (mean ± SD) was 60.9 ± 5.0% (calibration set) and 58.1 ± 6.0% (validation set), for SW UVabsorbance RR_SW was 61.5 ± 5.9% and 57.3 ± 6.0%, and for MW UV-absorbance RR_MW was 65.8 ± 5.8% and 61.7 ± 6.4% respectively. RR_SW and RRb were not statistically different. RR_MW was higher compared to RRb (p < 0.05). TRCr_lab was 13.8 ± 3.8 mmol, TRCr_SW 14.5 ± 2.5 mmol and TRCr_MW 13.8 ± 2.6 mmol, being not statistically different. Conclusion: In summary, creatinine removal during dialysis can be estimated as reduction ratio and total removed creatinine with the UV-absorbance technique.
