This book focuses on myocardial function and dysfunction in chronic uremia. The book is divided into three sections.

Cardiomyopathy in chronic uremia results from pressure and volume overload. The former causes concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, results from hypertension and aortic stenosis, and is also associated with diabetes mellitus and anemia. Volume overload causes LV dilatation, results from arteriovenous shunting, salt and water overload, and anemia, and is also associated with ischemic heart disease, hypertension, and hypoalbuminemia. Decreased major arterial compliance and an early return of arterial wave reflections are also associated with the extent of LV hypertrophy

Cardiac Dysfunction in Chronic Uremia Topics in Renal Medicine.

Cardiac disease is the major cause of death in dialysis patients, accounting for over one third of deaths. This book focuses on myocardial function and dysfunction in chronic uremia. It is aimed at practicing and training nephrologists, cardiologists, and internists, and at research workers in the field. We have tried to produce an up-to-date, in-depth review of the subject by inviting experts in clinical epidemiology, pathophysiology, and thera­ peutics to write the 18 chapters. The book is divided into three sections. The first section comprises five chapters that provide an overview of the burden of illness associated with cardiac disease in end-stage renal disease and a review of clinical epidemi­ ological aspects of various cardiac diseases that occur in renal patients. The second section discusses abnormalities of left ventricular contractility and mass, and the factors that predispose to both systolic and diastolic disorders. The importance of hypertension, anemia, hyperparathyroidism, hyper­ lipidemia, and diabetes mellitus in predisposing to these abnormalities is reviewed splendidly by researchers active in these areas. The final section concentrates on therapeutics. Data and opinion on management of congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, hypertension, and arrhythmias are provided. In editing this book, we have reviewed an extensive literature, but un­ fortunately we have become more aware that substantial gaps in our knowl­ edge exist. Insufficient high-quality clinical research has been undertaken xiii xiv Preface regarding the various cardiac diseases that occur in end-stage renal disease.
