Table 2 Nitric oxide (NO) and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) concentrations measured during the study

From: Hemodialysis and hemodiafiltration differently modulate left ventricular diastolic function

  HD HDF
  Before treatment After treatment Before treatment After treatment
NO(μmol/L) 30.3 ± .76 12.23 ± 5.7* 29.4 ± 18.25 11.55 ± 5.54*
ADMA(μmol/L) 0.69 ± 0.2 0.55 ± 0.16* 0.64 ± 0.18 0.59 ± 0.15*
  1. During hemodiafiltration and conventional hemodialysis both NO and ADMA concentrations were observed to decrease significantly two hours after completion of the treatments (*p < 0.001).
  2. HD: hemodialysis, HDF: haemodiafiltration.
