The influence of uremia on cardiovascular system

Uremic pericarditis: pericarditis in uremic patients is often a prognostic sign of death. Since dialysis treatment is available, the patient is persistent. Pericarditis may occur, however, when dialysis is inadequate or severe malnutrition occurs. Pabico report: Patients with better dialysis treatment occasionally suffer from viral pericarditis, which is associated with adenovirus infection. The immune function of uremic patients is poor, and the immune function defect of inpidual patients is more likely to be infected by adenovirus. Dialysis patients use anticoagulants to induce pericardial bleeding, pericardial fluid accumulation, and cardiac tamponade that can compress the heart and cause severe consequences.

Uremic myocarditis: uremia, cardiomyopathy is relatively rare, clinical manifestations: the heart is extremely enlarged, serious heart failure. The myocarditis frequently occurred in patients with severe malnutrition, but also can not simply put a special vitamin and nutritional deficiency change associated with cardiomyopathy may also need to discuss the pathology, there are other reasons.

Arrhythmia: arrhythmia is usually associated with imbalances in potassium. Diet mistake, sudden surgery or serious infection caused by hyperkalemia can lead to arrhythmia, more dangerous blood potassium changes in patients with digitalis has rapidly decreased, blood potassium can cause arrhythmia.

Metastatic myocardial calcification: in some long-term hyperphosphatemia patients, as well as other organizations can also occur in myocardial metastatic calcification, so that a part of myocardial fiber loss of function, and the emergence of frequent arrhythmia.

Hypertension is a common symptom of chronic glomerulonephritis, can prevent and control hypertension through strict control of water and sodium, but many patients unable to control blood pressure, need to use antihypertensive drugs, generally do not need to double kidney resection.
