Propranolol plasma concentrations were determined in a patient with hemolytic-uremic syndrome undergoing plasmapheresis before and after the procedure on three occasions. The mean half-life and elimination rate constant during plasmapheresis were estimated to be 25.6 percent of the values obtained without plasmapheresis. These changes suggest that plasmapheresis may influence propranolol disposition.
