BACKGROUND Higher than expected cardiovascular mortality in hemodialysis patients, has been attributed to dyslipidemia as well as inflammation. Beta2-Microglobulin (β2M) is an independent predictor of outcome for hemodialysis patients and a representative substance of middle molecules. RESULTS In 40 patients in high-flux membrane hemodialysis, we found(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory and procoagulant markers are potential mediators for the cardiovascular risk in hemodialysis patients. Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], is another important risk factor with inflammatory and procoagulant effects. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 78 hemodialysis patients and 40 controls, C-reactive protein (CRP), Interleukin-6 (IL-6), lipoprotein(More)

In this case is very difficult to distinguish toxic nodule from lobe agenesis. Our interest was to estimate and determinate(More)
