In this brief review, we evaluate the hypothesis that charcoal hemoperfusion is superior to hemodialysis in the treatment of uremia. Although hemoperfusion was first suggested by Muirhead and Reid in 1947 for the treatment of uremia, hemoperfusion was first utilized clinically in 1964 by Yatzidis. Since then more than 50 publications have described the effects of charcoal hemoperfusion on various aspects of uremia.
