In 22 end-stage renal disease patients on regular hemodialysis, echocardiographic study including 2-D Doppler echocardiogrphy was performed to evaluate the effect of hemodialysis on cardiac performance and the degree of valvular regurgitation. After hemodialysis, there were significant improvement of ventricular contractility and reduction of circulating volume in accordance with the reduction of degree of valvular regurgitation in comparison with before hemodialysis. We postulate that the reduction of valvular regurgitation after hemodialysis is caused by relief of hypervolemic state.
