Blood Pressure Measurements and Left Ventricular Mass Index in Hemodialysis Patients

Artificial Organs, 06/08/2012

Using multiple regression analysis, the authors found statistically significant correlations between left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and mean monthly postdialysis systolic BP and mean 48–h diastolic blood pressure (BP). Only longer BP measurements were associated with LVMI in hemodialysis patients.
