"Determinants of Increased Central Excess Pressure in Dialysis: Role of Dialysis Modality and Arteriovenous Fistula";
American Journal of Hypertension,
Arterial reservoir-wave analysis (RWA)-a new model of arterial hemodynamics-separates arterial wave into reservoir pressure (RP) and excess pressure (XSP). The XSP integral (XSPI) has been associated with increased risk of clinical outcomes. The objectives of the present study were to examine the determinants of XSPI in a mixed cohort of hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, to examine whether dialysis modality and the presence of an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) are associated with increased XSPI.
In a cross-sectional study, 290 subjects (232 HD and 130 with AVF) underwent carotid artery tonometry (calibrated with brachial diastolic and mean blood pressure). The XSPI was calculated through RWA using pressure-only algorithms. Logistic regression was used for determinants of XSPI above median. Through forward conditional linear regression, we examined whether treatment by HD or the presence of AVF is associated with higher XSPI.
