BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an important predictor of mortality in dialysis patients. The loss of residual renal function (RRF) appears to occur more rapidly in hemodialysis than continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). It is more likely that volume expansion in patients on CAPD may preserve RRF. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a cause-effect relationship between volume overload and preserving RRF in new hemodialysis patients. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
