Prevalence and risk factors of left ventricular hypertrophy among haemodialysis patients in Gezeira hospital for renal diseases and surgery

Cardiac disease is major cause of sudden death in dialysis patient according to reports from largest international registers. And Left ventricular hypertrophy is strongest independent predictor of cardiovascular mortality in dialysis patients and it is worsening associated with SCD. Several studies demonstrated prevalence of LVH is high among patients on maintenance haemodialysis and many risk factors associated with it was found in these patients are anaemia, hypertension and volume overload. Early and proper management of these factors prevent and regress the development of LVH, for that many clinical and nephrologist researchers focus their attention on processes and factors that are present in these patients. Aim: The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy an risk factors among patients on regular haemodialysis in Gezera hospital for renal disease and surgeryMethod : This study(crosssectional study) was conducted on 70 patients on regular haemodialysis(according to inclusion and exclusion criteria ) , questioner, blood pressure measurement, blood sampling for haemoglobin, ECG and echocardiography was done Author(s): Abderrahman Ahmed Mohamed Ismail
