Comparison of cardiac positron emission tomography perfusion defects during stress induced by hemodialysis versus adenosine.

Abstract

The cardiac stress imposed by hemodialysis may differ from that induced by pharmacologic agents used for myocardial perfusion imaging-based stress testing. With repetitive intradialytic [(13)N]ammonia positron emission tomography, we showed that standard hemodialysis had an acute adverse effect on cardiac perfusion and left ventricular function that was not… (More)
