Özet

Purpose Although there is an increased prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in hemodialysis patients, the relationship between arteriovenous (AV) fistula blood flow and pulmonary hemodynamics is not known. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationshipship between blood flow rate of AV fistula and pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) in hemodialysis patients.
