Background: Circulating troponin levels are both stable and higher in patients with end-stage renal disease, even in the absence of acute coronary syndrome. These patients commonly have underlying cardiac problems that frequently cause troponin elevation. The effect of hemodialysis (HD) on troponin levels has not been well elucidated. Thus, investigated herein is the relationship between the changes in troponin levels along with left ventricular deformation and volume depletion in patients with end-stage renal disease.
