Özet

Background. Changes in left ventricular (LV) geometry are frequent in patients with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Geometric adaptation of LV to various stimuli was reported to have adverse prognosis. This study aimed to identify independent risk factors, which contribute to the development of LV geometric remodelling in CAPD patients.
