Impaired exercise performance and muscle Na(+),K(+)-pump activity in renal transplantation and haemodialysis patients.


BACKGROUND We examined whether abnormal skeletal muscle Na(+),K(+)-pumps underlie impaired exercise performance in haemodialysis patients (HDP) and whether these are improved in renal transplant recipients (RTx). METHODS Peak oxygen consumption ( O(2peak)) and plasma [K(+)] were measured during incremental exercise in 9RTx, 10 HDP and 10 healthy controls… (More)
