Analytic assessment of the various bioimpedance methods used to estimate body water.
Knowledge of patient fluid distribution would be useful clinically. Both single-frequency (SF) and impedance modeling approaches are proposed. The high intercorrelation between body waterExpand

Increases in serum leptin levels during peritoneal dialysis are associated with inflammation and a decrease in lean body mass.
Leptin, secreted from fat cells, functions as a lipostat mechanism through modulation of satiety signals. Markedly elevated leptin levels have been documented in uremic patients, especially in thoseExpand

A critical evaluation of ultrasound measurement of inferior vena cava diameter in assessing dry weight in normotensive and hypertensive hemodialysis patients.
The utility of measurement of the inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD) with ultrasound for the assessment of fluid status and posthemodialysis dry weight was studied in 35 hemodialysis (HD) patients,Expand

Fluid state and blood pressure control in patients treated with long and short haemodialysis.
BACKGROUND Patients treated at the haemodialysis (HD) centre in Tassin, France have been reported to have superior survival and blood pressure (BP) control. This control has been ascribed toExpand

Serum levels of NG, NG-dimethyl-L-arginine, a potential endogenous nitric oxide inhibitor in dialysis patients.
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in blood pressure regulation, and its synthesis is inhibited by methylarginines. It has been hypothesized that one of these, asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA), mayExpand

Improved intradialytic stability during haemodialysis with blood volume-controlled ultrafiltration.
BACKGROUND Intradialytic morbid events (IMEs) during haemodialysis (HD), including symptomatic hypotension, are related to ultrafiltration (UF)-induced hypovolaemia. Blood volume monitoring andExpand

Influence of hemodialysis on intravascular volume and vasoactive hormones.
BACKGROUND The posthemodialysis plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) has been proposed as an index for an adequate fluid state in hemodialysis (HD) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS WeExpand

Multifrequency bioimpedance in assessment of dry weight in haemodialysis.
The use of multifrequency bioimpedance (MFB) for determination of dry weight (DW) in haemodialysis (HD) patients was evaluated in three studies. In Study 1, the fluid state [total body water (TBW)Expand
