    Introduction. Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in hemodialysis patients. Regular aerobic or intradialytic exercise may play a role in reducing cardiovascular mortality in these patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between intradialytic exercise and...

    T wave morphology (TWM) descriptors derived from Holter electrocardiograms during hemodialysis (HD) are of potential value for cardiac risk assessment in HD patients. Our knowledge on autonomic regulation of TWM descriptors is limited. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association...

    In end stage renal disease, inflammation is considered a critical regulator of atherosclerotic plaque formation and progression, to which many dialysis and non-dialysis-related factors may contribute. Since circulating inflammatory cytokine levels vary inter-individually, one may speculate that...

    Background: Given that cardiac disease is the leading cause of mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients, identification of patients at risk for cardiac mortality is crucial. The aim of this study was to determine if positive T-wave amplitude in lead aVR (TaVR) was predictive of cardiovascular...

    We report the first case of Pasteurella pneumotropica peritonitis in a peritoneal dialysis patient. This rare infection was the result of contamination of the dialysis tubing by a pet hamster. We stress the importance of household pets as a source of infection in the peritoneal dialysis population.
