Relationship between erythropoietin resistance index and left ventricular mass and function and cardiovascular events in patients on chronic hemodialysis.

Abstract

The response to erythropoietin (EPO) treatment varies considerably in individual patients on chronic hemodialysis. The EPO resistance index (ERI) has been considered useful to assess the EPO resistance and can be easily calculated in the clinic. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between ERI and left ventricular mass (LVM) and function… (More)
