But hemofiltration is usually used in intensive care setting for acute kidney injury hoping to have a recovery, after which patients can get rid of it.

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?

Coblation: Understand, these treatments are low (not zero) risk, but for what purpose? Contained herniation means that there is no pressure on the nerves, and the disc is simply not in a "normal" location within the disc space. Study? Fine. These haven't worked except temporarily in the lumbar spine. I would be pessimistic. Maximize mckenzie pt. Not heat/us/tens as they are useless. If no other option, fine.
