Background: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and systolic dysfunction would predict the mortality of patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis. The cause of LVH is usually related to the increase of total peripheral vascular resistance and overloading volume. The presence of residual diuresis enables greater control of the volume. This study evaluated the effects of residual renal function (RRF) on the left ventricle and analyzed the related factors involved in hemodialysis patients. Methods: A total of 59 hemodialysis patients were classified into two groups. The patients in the RRF (RRF+) group had a urine volume greater than 200 mL/24 h, and the patients in the non-RRF (RRF-) group had a urine volume less than 200 mL/24 h. B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), blood total homocysteine (tHcy), and blood biochemical indexes were determined for the patients in both groups. Echocardiography and Doppler tests were performed to determine the cardiac indexes. Results: LVH and systolic dysfunction in the RRF+ group were less severe than those in the RRF- group. The concentration of tHcy and BNP in patients with RRF was decreased in comparison with those without RRF. The concentration of tHcy and BNP was positively correlated with the residual diuresis. Conclusions: There were distinct ventricular geometric patterns and different functional performances between RRF+ and RRF- groups. The presence of residual diuresis had a beneficial effect on the left ventricular function in hemodialysis patients.
