Troponin T for the detection of dialysis-induced myocardial stunning in hemodialysis patients.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Circulating troponin T levels are frequently elevated in patients undergoing long-term dialysis. The pathophysiology underlying these elevations is controversial. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, ...
Frequent hemodialysis schedules are associated with reduced levels of dialysis-induced cardiac injury (myocardial stunning).
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Recurrent hemodialysis (HD)-induced ischemic cardiac injury (myocardial stunning) is common and associated with high ultrafiltration (UF) requirements, intradialytic hypotension, long-term loss ...
