The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between subtle cardiovascular abnormalities and abnormal sodium handling in cirrhosis. A total of 35 biopsy-proven patients with cirrhosis with or without ascites and 14 age-matched controls underwent two-dimensional echocardiography and radionuclide angiography for assessment of cardiac volumes, structural changes and systolic and diastolic functions under strict metabolic conditions of a sodium intake of 22 mmol/day. Cardiac output… CONTINUE READING
