  1. E and E/Ea decreased in both renal replacement modalities (p < 0.001), but E/A ratio’s significant decrease was observed only during hemodiafiltration.
  2. HD: hemodialysis, HDF: hemodiafiltration, LA: left atrial cross diameter, EF: left ventricular ejection fraction, LVMI: left ventricular mass index, LVESD: left ventricular end systolic diameter, LVEDD: left ventricular end diastolic diameter, VCI: inferior vena cava diameter (*p < 0.05).
