BACKGROUND Hemodialysis (HD) patients are at risk of developing trace element imbalances. METHODS The 12 trace elements Cd, Co, Cs, Cu, La, Mg, Mo, Pb, Rb, Sr, Tl and Zn were determined in the plasma (n = 52) of 6 chronic HD patients before and after HD sessions by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Plasma trace element concentrations were monitored for 6 months. Baseline data have been compared to the concentrations at the end of the observation period to identify a potential… CONTINUE READING
