Pattern and possible contributing factors to dialysis-associated arrhythmia in young patients
AbstractWe studied dialysis-associated arrhythmia in 48 uraemic patients < 35 years on chronic haemodialysis [HD] [> 3 months]. Holter findings showed only minor arrhythmia; atrial in 42% of patients and ventricular in 38%. ST-segment depression > 1 mm was observed in 58% of patients; 80% had arrhythmia, and 36% experienced anginal pain. HD caused a significant increase in QTc, QTdc and Ca[2+] level, while K[+] level was significantly decreased. Patients who experienced arrhythmia during HD had higher left ventricular mass and left ventricular mass index, lower post-dialysis K+ level, higher QTc and QTdc both before and after HD. They were more frequently hypertensive. ST-segment depression was significantly related to ventricular arrhythmia

Batieha, A.; Abdallah, S.; Maghaireh, M.; Awad, Z.; Al Akash, N.; Batieneh, A.; Ajlouni, K.A. (2007)To assess the epidemiology and burden of haemodialysis in Jordan, all patients on haemodialysis [1711 patients] were surveyed during September/October 2003. Mean age was 48.9 years, 56% were male, 86.8% were unemployed and 92% were poor. Mean distance to the haemodialysis service was 13.6 km. Annual hepatitis B and C seroconversion for patients negative before dialysis was 0.34% and 2.6% respectively. Prevalence of haemodialysis was 312 per million population; the incidence in 2002 was 111 per million population. Fatality rate at 1 year was 20%. ...
[Programme for improving emotional and cognitive changes in patients under renal dialysis in Egypt] Awadalla, Hala I.; El Ateek, Ahmed M.; Elhammady, Mohamed M.; Kamel, Magda A. (2008)We investigated the effect of chronic renal failure on the emotional status, social and psychological adaptation and the cognitive status of patients and the effect of a programme to improve the psychosocial state of the patients; 40 renal dialysis patients and 40 healthy controls were included. We used the Emotional Status Scale, Psychosocial Adaptation Scale, the Primary Mental Abilities Test and the Memory Processes Scale for assessment of the participants. The controls had better emotional/ cognitive status and psychosocial adaptation than ...
Shamsadini, S.; Darvish, Moghaddam S.; Abdollahi, H.; Fekri, A.R.; Ebrahimi, H.A. (2006)A study was carried out on 57 patients with chronic renal failure in a hospital in Kerman city, Islamic Republic of Iran. Blood samples were taken before and after haemodialysis to measure blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine, triiodothyronine [T3] and thyroxine [T4] levels. Findings revealed that before dialysis T4 in 11 cases and T3 in 29 cases were lower than the normal range, but after haemodialysis only 3 cases for T4 and 15 cases for T3 were lower than normal levels. The remaining cases reverted to normal state. We suggest that a feedback ...
