To better define the survival and quality of life of patients with major left ventricular systolic dysfunction and end-stage renal disease treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), we reviewed all cases who started CAPD between May 1984 and March 1993 who had an isotopic left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < or = 35%. Seventeen patients (12 men and five women with a mean age of 51.6 +/- 14.9 years) met the inclusion criteria. Mean isotopic LVEF before initiation of CAPD… CONTINUE READING
