Assessment of Left Ventricular Dissipative Energy Loss by Vector Flow Mapping in Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease.


OBJECTIVES Dissipative energy loss derived from vector flow mapping represents the viscous dissipation of turbulent blood flow. We aimed to determine the left ventricular (LV) energy loss in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS Patients with ESRD and a preserved LV ejection fraction, who consisted of a group receiving peritoneal dialysis… (More)
