Table 3 Changes in left ventricular mass following conversion to INHD

From: Regression of left ventricular mass following conversion from conventional hemodialysis to thrice weekly in-centre nocturnal hemodialysis

Analysis* Left ventricular mass (SD) in grams while on CHD Left ventricular mass (SD) in grams after conversion to INHD Change in LVM (SD) in grams p-value
Primary (n = 37) 219 ± 66 186 ± 69 -32 ± 58 0.002
Secondary (n = 31) 215 ± 71 174 ± 62 -40 ± 56 0.0004
  1. *In both the primary and secondary analyses, the patient's last available echocardiogram on conventional hemodialysis prior to conversion to INHD was considered the pre-conversion study. In the primary analysis, the post-conversion echocardiogram was the first study occurring ≥ 6 months following conversion to INHD. In the secondary analysis, the post-conversion echocardiogram was the first study occurring ≥ 12 months following conversion to INHD.
