Volume-independent mechanisms of hypertension in hemodialysis patients: clinical implications.

PMID:  15250915     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The renin-angiotensin and sympathetic nervous systems are often activated in hemodialysis (HD) patients; the pathogenesis of this condition is discussed. Medications aimed at reducing renin and sympathetic activity may improve the cardiovascular prognosis, independent of its effect on blood pressure. This knowledge has important implications for the choice of treatment in HD patients.
