Background. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been reported to be a powerful predictor of peritoneal dialysis patient survival. However, it is unclear as to whether this is related to cardiac dysfunction or chronic volume overload. Methods. To investigate the relationship between BNP, cardiac function and fluid volume overload, we reviewed multifrequency bioimpedance, transthoracic echocardiography and serum N-terminal probrain-type natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP) in 115 stable peritoneal dialysis outpatients attending for …
