Abstract

Background and objective: Fluid overload is an important factor of morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. Today correct determination of dry weight (DW) remains an important issue of hemodialysis practice. Within this context, it is subjected to new method searching. The objective of this study was to calculate estimated pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (ePCWP) with Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) in hemodialysis patients and to evaluate its correlation with the other volume markers and to evaluate whether it can be a new method for detection of DW.
