The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between left ventricular hypertrophy and diastolic function in patients on chronic hemodyalisis. We prospectively studies echo parameters of left ventricle in 40 patients on chronic hemodialysis at the UKC Tuzla and compared them to those of 30 healthy controls. The echo parameters were determined by using the m-mode, 2-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography. According to the thickness of IVS, the patients were divided into group 1 (IVS<12 mm) and group 2 (IVS>12 mm).
Table 1. Main Doppler echo parameters in pts on hemodialysis Parameter Group 1 Group 2 Control A wave (cm/s) 73,76 ± 22,0 77,88 ± 24,57 58,46 ± 9,65* E/A 1,08 ± 0,22 0,96 ± 0,26 1,26 ± 0,31*
*p<0.001, A peak of late diastolic flow velocity, E/A - early to late flow velocity
Conclusion: These results suggest that diastolic dysfunction in patients on hemodialysis might be independent of left ventricular hypertrophy.
