  1. Congestive heart failure in dialysis patients : prevalence, incidence, prognosis and risk factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in dialysis subjects.

    Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a common presenting symptom of cardiovascular disease in the dialysis population.

    Information regarding prevalence, incidence, risk factors and prognosis is crucial for planning rational interventional studies.

    A prospective multicenter cohort study of 432 dialysis patients followed for a mean of 41 months was carried out.

    Prospective information on a variety of risk factors was collected.

    Annual echocardiography and clinical assessment was performed.

    Major endpoints included death and the development of morbid cardiovascular events.

    One hundred and thirty-three (31%) subjects had CHF at the time of initiation of dialysis therapy.

    Multivariate analysis showed that the following risk factors were significantly and independently associated with CHF at baseline : systolic dysfunction, older age, diabetes mellitus and ischemic heart disease.

    Seventy-six of 299 subjects (25%) who did not have baseline CHF subsequently developed CHF during their course on dialysis.

    Compared to those subjects who never developed CHF (N=218) multivariate analysis identified the following risk factors for the development of CHF : older age, anemia during dialysis therapy, hypoalbuminemia, hypertension during dialysis therapy, and systolic dysfunction.

    Seventy-five of the 133 (56%) subjects with CHF at haseline had recurrent CHF during follow-up.
