On the 3 rd day the CVVHDF treatment BUN and Cr values decreased to 14 mg/dl and 0.78 mg/dl, respectively. On the 3 rd day the CVVHDF treatment BUN and Cr values decreased to 14 mg/dl and 0.78 mg/dl, respectively. Therefore we performed a study to select the best chelator to treat bismuth poisoning. A 56 year old woman who had recently begun treatment Dimercaprol (BAL), meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA), D,L-2,3-dimercapto-propane-I-sulfonic acid (DMPS), D-penicillamine (D-PEN), N-acetyl-D,L-penicillamine (Ac-PEN), thiopronine (TP), sodium-calcium edetate (EDTA) and deferoxamine (DFO) were tested with an in vitro model of equilibrium dialysis and an in vivo model of rats poisoned with bismuth. The dithiol compounds (DMPS, DMSA and BAL) were effective in most organs (especially in kidney and liver) resulting in a higher elimination of bismuth in urine by DMPS and BAL. Original Article (German Only): Download Brain CT scan and MRI were both normal.
