To separate the effects of hemodialysis on loading conditions from those on contractile state, six patients with concentric left ventricular hypertrophy and normal left ventricular function were studied before, during, and after hemodialysis. Two-dimensional-directed M-mode ultrasound was used to measure left ventricular dimensions and wall thickness; a sphygmomanometer and carotid pulse recording were used to determine peak and end-systolic blood pressure. From these data, meridional stress at… CONTINUE READING
