M-mode, two-dimensional, and Doppler echocardiography were performed in 38 chronic renal failure (CRD) patients on conservative management, 35 patients on hemodialysis, and 36 matched controls. The controls were matched for age, sex, and comorbidities. The incidence of hypertension, left ventricular (LV) end diastolic volume, LV end systolic volume, and LV mass index were significantly higher in patients on hemodialysis compared to the controls. The LV parameters in the predialysis patients… CONTINUE READING
