BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for about half of deaths and are the major cause of mortality in hemodialysis patients. The aim of this study is to assess left ventricular (LV) longitudinal myocardial functions by color tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) in patients with chronic renal failure on a regular hemodialysis program. METHODS Thirty-one patients on a regular hemodialysis program (mean age 47 +/- 12 years; 17 males, 14 females) were included into the study. Twenty-three… CONTINUE READING
