Relationships between brain natriuretic peptide, troponin I and QT dispersion in asymptomatic dialysis patients.

M Cagatay Taskapan, Hulya Taskapan, Ozkan Ulutas, Mesut Orhan, Ibrahim Sahin,

<h4>Objectives</h4>The relationships between increased wall stress, myocyte death, and ventricular repolarization instability in patients with heart failure were reported.<h4>Design and methods</h4>The relationships between brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), a predictor of increased wall stress of hearth; troponin I (cTnI), a predictor of myocyte death; and QT dispersion (QTd), a reflection of ...

Brain natriuretic peptide and P wave duration in dialysis patients.

M Cagatay Taskapan, Soner Senel, Ozkan Ulutas, Yuksel Aksoy, Ibrahim Sahin, Feridun Kosar, Hulya Taskapan,

<h4>Objectives</h4>P wave duration and dispersion, defined as the difference between the maximum and minimum P duration, are regarded as very important non-invasive ECG markers for assessing atrial arrhythmia risk. Plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) level is an independent predictor of recurrence of atrial fibrillation. We compared the effects of hemodialysis ... Read more >>

Serum leptin, resistin, and lipid levels in patients with end stage renal failure with regard to dialysis modality.

M Cagatay Taskapan, Hulya Taskapan, Ibrahim Sahin, Lezzan Keskin, Hasan Atmaca, Fatma Ozyalin,

<h4>Unlabelled</h4>Little information is available on the relationship between serum resistin levels and other adipokines with serum lipid levels and insulin resistance in uremic patients under different dialysis modalities.<h4>Methods</h4>This study investigated the effects of dialysis modality on serum leptin, adiponectin, resistin, interleukin 6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha levels ...

Brain natriuretic peptide and its relationship to left ventricular hypertrophy in patients on peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis less than 3 years.

M Cagatay Taskapan, Ozkan Ulutas, Yuksel Aksoy, Soner Senel, Ibrahim Sahin, Feridun Kosar, Hulya Taskapan,

An increase of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels is commonly observed in patients on dialysis. Increased circulating levels of BNP are related to future cardiac events and associated with shorter survival in patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD). During the first 1 or 2 years on dialysis, patients on peritoneal dialysis ... Read more >>

Platelet activity and serum homocysteine levels in patients with end-stage renal failure with regard to dialysis modality.

Hulya Taskapan, Soner Senel, Ozkan Ulutas, M Cagatay Taskapan, Yuksel Aksoy, Feridun Kosar, Ismet Aydogdu, Ibrahim Sahin,

<h4>Background</h4>Recent evidence suggests that the activation of platelets and their interaction with circulating cells are important independent risk factors for atherosclerosis. In non-uremic patients with symptomatic peripheral vascular disease, a relationship between serum homocysteine (Hcy) levels and platelet activity had been reported. The purposes of this study were to evaluate ... Read more >>

Interdialytic weight gain and pulmonary membrane diffusing capacity in patients on hemodialysis.

Hulya Taskapan, Ramazan Ulu, Hakan Gullu, M Cagatay Taskapan, Zeki Yildirim, Feridun Kosar, Ibrahim Sahin, Mine Kaya,

<h4>Background</h4>Measurement of pulmonary diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) may be useful for assessing disease affecting the alveolar-capillary bed or the pulmonary vasculature. It was reported that hemodialysis (HD) therapy causes DLCO reduction via decrease of pulmonary capillary blood volume components. The aim of the study was to evaluate the ... Read more >>
