AIM Increased blood pressure variability (BPV) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is proved to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease [Tozawa et al. 1999]. The effect of ultrafiltration (UF) on BPV in hemodialysis (HD) patients has not been reported in the literature. This study was undertaken to define the effect of a single UF on BPV in HD patients. METHODS Prior and after HD with UF, 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) was applied to each patient and then diurnal and… CONTINUE READING
