Abstract :
The aim of this study was to investigate the value of echocardiography for evaluation of the left ventricular functions of long-standing hemodialysis patients . This study was done in the renal center in Sinnar Teaching Hospital in echocardiography department using sector probe of 3.5 MHz. The study included 200 cases under regular hemodialysis, using questioner included patient personal data, and echocardiography findings, data was analyzed using computer programs for analysis (SPSS). The results of this study revealed that according to echocardiography findings 37% impaired ejection fraction, 21% reduced stroke volume, 19% impaired cardiac output, 13% tachycardia, and 20% reduced wall motion. The study showed that the Age had negative correlations with Septum, COP, and a positive correlation with, EF, FS, and heart rate. In related Weight, levels show negative correlations with heart rate, EF, and fractioning shorting, stroke volume and a positive correlation with COP, stroke volume, but the Duration showed negative correlation with COP, stroke volume, and FS, and positive correlation Ejection fraction, and HR. These studies concluded that echocardiography could be used for follow up hearts of these patients and adjust the suitable time for an intervention and echocardiography is a widely used evaluation tool in cardiovascular research.
