Aldosterone suppression and subsequent hyperkalemia are well described reversible side effects of prolonged treatment with heparin. This study was designed to examine whether the discontinuous use of heparin three times a week to prevent thrombosis formation during hemodialysis sessions could also induce hypoaldosteronism and might contribute to increased predialysis kalemia in hemodialysis patients. Two different heparinization regimens were prospectively compared in a crossover study of 11… CONTINUE READING
