Table 4 Effect of INHD Conversion on Left Ventricular Mass

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

  Estimate (Standard Error)
Level of LVM at the conversion date (g) 212.9 (9.9) *
Annual change in LVM before the INHD conversion date (g/year) 0.4 (2.5)
Annual change in LVM following the INHD conversion date (g/year) -11.7 (3.1)*
Difference in annual change in LVM following and prior to INHD conversion (g/year) -12.1(4.8) *
  1. The results are based on estimates from a mixed model analysis. They include all patients who converted to INHD who had at least 2 echocardiograms performed at anytime (n = 40). All available echocardiograms for these patients were considered in these analyses (n = 184).
