Intradialytic changes in reflective properties of the arterial system during a single hemodialysis session.

Abstract

Increased aortic stiffness-measured as aortic augmentation index (AIx), a global stiffness marker-has emerged as a powerful predictor of survival in hemodialysis (HD). A single HD session is known to produce considerable improvement in aortic stiffness. We set out, for the first time, to examine the relative contributions to the post-HD drastic improvement… (More)
