Background and objectives: N-terminal probrain type natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP) has been proven to be a valuable biomarker for predicting cardiac events and mortality in the hemodialysis population. However recent reports have suggested that NTproBNP is a marker of volume overload rather than one of cardiac dysfunction. Therefore this study investigated the effect of fluid volume status on NTproBNP. Design, setting, participants, & measurements: Volume status was determined pre-and postdialysis in 72 stable …
