Frequent hemodialysis schedules are associated with reduced levels of dialysis-induced cardiac injury (myocardial stunning).
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Recurrent hemodialysis (HD)-induced ischemic cardiac injury (myocardial stunning) is common and associated with high ultrafiltration (UF) requirements, intradialytic hypotension, long-term loss ...
Individualised dialysate temperature improves intradialytic haemodynamics and abrogates haemodialysis-induced myocardial stunning, without compromising tolerability.
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Haemodialysis-induced myocardial stunning is associated with intradialytic hypotension, increased likelihood of cardiovascular events and death. Dialysis at 35°C reduces stunning, but adverse thermal ...
Circulating endotoxemia: a novel factor in systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Translocated endotoxin derived from intestinal bacteria has a wide range of adverse effects on cardiovascular (CV) structure and function, driving systemic inflammation, atherosclerosis and ...
