  1. PD—Controlling Volume to Reach Normal Hydration Protects the Heart

    Reanalysis of data from a multicenter, prospective, randomized controlled trial looked at fluid control in PD in 151 patients followed for a year. While most (120) reached normal hydration levels as measured by bioimpedance analysis, those who did not had significantly higher left atrial diameter—and a lower left ventricular ejection fraction at the end of the study.
