Abstract

Background: On the basis of cardiovascular compliance, hemodialysis (HD) patients can be classified as hypotension prone (HP) or hypotension resistant (HR). Methods: We compare the hemodynamic behavior and myocardial performances in 6 HP and 6 HR patients before and after an isolated ultrafiltration (IU) session removing 3% of total body water. Results: HP show higher basal plasma angiotensin II levels during IU (p
