Summary of "Evaluation of index of cardiac-electrophysiological balance before and after hemodialysis in patients with end-stage renal disease."

Ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac deaths are the most common cause of mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Index of cardiac-electrophysiological balance (iCEB) (QT/QRS) may predict malignant ventricular arrhythmias. In this study, we investigated whether iCEB value is increased in ESRD patients and whether it changes before and after hemodialysis.

Fat-to-Lean Mass Ratio Can Predict Cardiac Events and All-Cause Mortality in Patients Undergoing Hemodialysis.

Although higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with better survival in patients undergoing dialysis, BMI is not an adequate obesity indicator. We hypothesized that the fat-to-lean (F/L) mass rati...

De novo Cardiac Valve Calcification after Hemodialysis in End-Stage Renal Disease Patients Predicts Future Cardiovascular Events: A Longitudinal Cohort Study.

Cardiac valve calcification (CVC) in maintenance hemodialysis patients is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. However, whether de novo CVC in incident hemodialysis patients predicts futur...

Dietary inflammatory index and parameters of diet quality in normal weight and obese patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Better nutritional reserves are proposed as a mechanism for the protective role of obesity in hemodialysis. Little is known about the quality of diet as a major contributor to nutritional status, spec...

A new nutritional risk index for predicting mortality in hemodialysis patients: Nationwide cohort study.

Protein energy wasting (PEW) is a risk factor for death. However, the cutoff vales for PEW are not optimized for early identification of hemodialysis patients with malnutrition. We evaluated the progn...

The antiarrhythmic actions of bisaramil and penticainide result from mixed cardiac ion channel blockade.

Decades of focus on selective ion channel blockade has been dismissed as an effective approach to antiarrhythmic drug development. In that context many older antiarrhythmic drugs lacking ion channel s...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.

Solutions prepared for hemodialysis. The composition of the pre-dialysis solution may be varied in order to determine the effect of solvated metabolites on anoxia, malnutrition, acid-base balance, etc. Of principal interest are the effect of the choice of buffers (e.g., acetate or carbonate), the addition of cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+), and addition of carbohydrates (glucose).

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.

The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.
