A Single Centre Based Study on Prevalence of Left Ventricular Dysfunction in End Stage Renal Disease Patients on Peritoneal Dialysis

Abstract

Dr. Richu Sharma1* and Shivali Sharma2

Heart failure affects more than 40 million people globally in a single year and is expected to increase in the coming time. In patients, who have associated comorbidities are more likely to develop left ventricular dysfunction and subsequently heart failure. Left ventricular dysfunction increases cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in end stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis. Peritoneal dialysis has emerged as an alternative mode of renal replacement therapy for end stage renal disease patients. However the prevalence of left ventricular dysfunction in end stage renal disease patients is scarcely known. A 33.33% prevalence of left ventricular dysfunction has been observed in our study.
