Abstract

CASTILLO-CEJAS, María Dolores; TORRES-RAMIREZ, Inés de  and  ALONSO-COTONER, Carmen. Colonic necrosis due to calcium polystyrene sulfonate (Kalimate) not suspended in sorbitol. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2013, vol.105, n.4, pp.232-234. ISSN 1130-0108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1130-01082013000400010.

Cation-exchange resins are used in the management of hyperkalemia, particularly in patients with end-stage renal disease. These resins were associated with gastrointestinal tract lesions, especially sodium polystyrene sulfonate (Kayexalate) mixed with sorbitol. We present a case of colonic necrosis after the administration of calcium polystyrene sulfonate (Kalimate) not suspended in sorbitol.

Keywords : Ischemic colitis; Necrosis; Kalimate; Sorbitol.
