Bilirubin removal from blood and curing patients suffering from hyperbilirubinemia by surgery, medication or interventional therapies was common, previously. Alternative bilirubin separation techniques such as plasma exchange, affinity chromatography and etc., are efficient in reducing high levels of bilirubin with fewer side effects. However, due to the various causes and complications associated with hyperbilirubinemia, different strategies are needed for the treatment. This article offers a historical overview on these strategies, challenges and also outlines the technological advantages and disadvantages associated with various bilirubin removal techniques.
