Abstract

Cardiovascular mortality remains the leading cause of death in patients with end-stage renal disease. Frequent home hemodialysis in the form of short daily hemodialysis and nocturnal home hemodialysis has been suggested to correct multiple cardiovascular surrogate endpoints in observational and randomized controlled studies. This review discusses recent advances of intensive hemodialysis on important cardiovascular outcomes including blood pressure control and cardiovascular geometry and function. Its impact on calcium-phosphate metabolism and anemia management as they relate to cardiovascular outcomes are highlighted.
