Abnormal geometry and hypertrophy of left ventricle in patients with chronic kidney disease


Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of left ventricular geometric patterns in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Materials and Methods: A total of 162 patients (100 males) with stage 2–5 CKD were included in the study. Patient age was between 17 and 79 years. Left ventricular geometry (LVG) patterns were calculated as left ventricular normal geometry (LVNG), left ventricular concentric remodeling (LVCR), concentric left ventricular hypertrophy (cLVH) and eccentric left ventricular hypertrophy (eLVH) by echocardiographic parameters. Results: The incidence of LVH was 45.1%. LVG patterns were found as follows: eLVH in patients 18(11.1%), cLVH in 42(25.9%), LVCR in 51(31.5%), and LVNG 51(31.5%). LVNG was found 10.38% and 34.27% in CKD stage 2 and dialysis, respectively. LVCR was as high as 62.3% in CKD stage2. cLVH and eLVH were found as 35.92% and 29.13% in stage 5 non-dialysis and dialysis, respectively. There was a relationship between clinical characteristics and LVG as follows age and GFR with LVCR, HbA1C and serum levels of albumin and sodium with cLVH, and age and serum albumin with eLVH Conclusions: In our CKD patients, abnormal LVG was found as earlier as CKD stage 2. The incidence of cLVH and eLVH was higher in advanced stages of CKD. Nontraditional factors such as volume status and nutrition were also crucial for left ventricular remodeling.
