BACKGROUND AND AIMS The association between inflammation and left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and non-CAPD patients is not established. The objective of this study was to test the above association and whether inflammation interacts with CAPD to increase LV diastolic dysfunction risks. METHODS AND RESULTS 120 subjects with normal creatinine levels and 101 CAPD patients were recruited. Echocardiographic parameters were assessed in… CONTINUE READING
