Changes in Cardiovascular Hemodynamics During Peritoneal Dialysis
University of Aarhus
During peritoneal dialysis, water is removed from the body. This sometimes occurs at rates of
up to 500 ml/h. During shifts with dialysate with high glucose content, an increase in blood
pressure has been described. The effect upon central hemodynamics is unknown. The researchers
are investigating the effects of low and high glucose dialysate and icodextrin on cardiac
output, stroke volume, pulse rate and blood pressure. The researchers have hypothesized that
the effects seen are induced by vasopressin.
Efficacy Study of the Addition of Bemiparin to Icodextrin Solution in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients (Bemidextrina)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether addition of bemiparin, once daily in
icodextrin solution for peritoneal dialysis for 16 weeks, increases the peritoneal capacity
for ultrafiltration and/or reduces creatinine transport in peritoneal dialysis patients
presenting functional disorders related to ultrafiltration deficit and/or high transport.
