Characterisation of cardiomyopathy by cardiac and aortic magnetic resonance in patients new to hemodialysis.
OBJECTIVES: Cardiomyopathy is a key factor in accelerated cardiovascular mortality in haemodialysis (HD) patients. We aimed to phenotype cardiac and vascular dysfunction by tagged cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) ...
Circulating endotoxaemia and frequent haemodialysis schedules
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Endotoxaemia, a driver of systemic inflammation, appears to be driven by dialysis-induced circulatory stress in haemodialysis (HD) patients. More frequent HD regimens are associated with lower ultrafiltration ...
The impact of hemodialysis on segmental and global longitudinal myocardial strain.
Strain analysis derived from the analysis of speckle tracked imaging echocardiography can be used to examine ventricular contractile functions. In this study, we examined the relationship of hemodialysis (HD)-induced ...
Intensive Hemodialysis and Potential Risks With Increasing Treatment.
Although intensive hemodialysis (HD) can address important clinical problems, increasing treatment also introduces risks. In this review, we assess risks pertaining to 6 domains: vascular access complications, infection, ...
Nephrologists' perspectives on dialysis treatment: results of an international survey.
BACKGROUND: In-centre haemodialysis (ICHD) is the most common dialysis method used by patients worldwide. However, quality of life and clinical outcomes in patients treated via ICHD have not improved for some time. 'High-dose' ...
A narrative systematic review of randomised controlled trials that compare cannulation techniques for haemodialysis
Background: Cannulation of arteriovenous access for haemodialysis affects longevity of the access, associates with complications and affects patients’ experiences of haemodialysis. Buttonhole and rope ladder techniques ...
