BACKGROUND/AIM Brain atrophy is known to develop more rapidly in hemodialysis (HD) patients than other individuals. The present study was designed to examine the role of HD-related hypotension in brain atrophy in patients on chronic HD. METHODS By using magnetic resonance imaging, whole brain atrophy was assessed by the ventricular-brain ratio (VBR; ventricular area/whole brain area). Frontal brain atrophy was assessed by the frontal atrophy index (FAI; frontal brain area/intracranial frontal… CONTINUE READING
