Özet

Background. Doppler echocardiography has recently revealed frequent occurrence of valvular (in particular mitral) regurgitation in dialysis (HD) patients. We hypothesized that this may be in part 'functional' and related to the cardiac dilatation which is also frequently present. Thus it would be possible to improve it by ultrafiltration.
