Hemodialysis.com: What are the main findings of the study?
Our study included 140 patients (58 females, 82 males; the average age 61 ± 15 years) on chronic hemodialysis program. We investigated the prevalence of atrial fibrillation, atrioventricular blocks and bundle branch blocks (complete and incomplete) in these patients and analyzed different clinical factors.
Atrial fibrillation was present in 11 (7.9%) of the 140 patients. In multivariate analysis, age and higher concentration of uric acid were associated with atrial fibrillation.
