Objective: To study the influence of different dialysis frequency on microinflammation for the maintenance haemodialysis patients.
Methods: Fifty-three maintenance haemodialysis patients with chronic kidney disease were divided into three groups. Groups A, B and C dialysed three times per week, twice per week and three times per 2 weeks, respectively. Total time was 1 year. The index of microinflammation state was measured in all patients before and after 1 year.
Results: There were significant differences in the index of microinflammation state between any two groups.
Conclusion: Patients who dialysed less than two times each week had a higher rate of microinflammation state. This showed that dialysis frequency was important for maintenance haemodialysis.
