A) Cardiovascular issues

1. Exacerbation or Precipitation of CHF – Voluminous AV Fistula

AV shunting → Decreased TPR → BP fall → Sympathetic stimulation & RAAS activation → Ventricular transforming → Coronary heart failure

A number of research have investigated the cut-off fistula entry stream that’s related to a better threat of high-output cardiac failure, with outcomes ranging between 1.5 and a couple of.0 l/min

Requires surgical administration of AV defect

2. Vascular and Cardiac calcifications –

  • 2⁰ hyperparathyroidism
  • Ca²⁺ containing binders
  • Vitamin D analogues

3. Exacerbation of hypertension – Erythropoiesis Stimulating Brokers (ESA)

ESA mediated elevated TPR is mediated by enhance in endothelins, angiotensin, impaired vascular entothelial leisure, altered calcium ranges in vascular easy muscle cells and the discharge of serotonin by the platelets.

  • Related to: hypoalbuminemia, decreased protein synthesis, diminished muscle mass

5 to eight g of free amino acids per dialysis session with low-flux dialyzers 30% better amino acid losses with high-flux dialyzers

Uremia is a hypercatabolic state; components concerned are: low protein consumption, elevated plasma hypercatabolic hormones which are insufficiently degraded by the kidney (glucagon, cortisone, catecholamine), tissue resistance to anabolic hormone actions because of accumulation of uremic toxins. Hemodialysis largely corrects these issues by removing of the toxins, normalizing the half-life of catabolic hormones and in addition by permitting a traditional or hyperproteic weight-reduction plan
