Predicting pericardial effusions in end-stage renal disease: Does pulmonary hypertension play a role?
Cardiovascular Disorders and Medicine
Pericardial effusion occurs, in variable extent, in 35% of patients on hemodialysis. Pulmonary hypertension is considered responsible for the generation and maintenance of pericardial effusion, but such association has not been proven in hemodialysis patients.
