The duration and quality of life of patients undergoing extracorporeal renal replacement therapy are largely dependent on concomitant diseases and conditions. Cardiovascular disease is a significant complication of chronic kidney disease and a major cause of death in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Cardiovascular remodeling is an independent predictor of the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), including those in the dialysis stage. This paper analyzes the literature on left ventricular myocardial remodeling in the late predialysis stages of CKD and in patients receiving treatment with chronic hemodialysis.
