Objective: To study influence of different dialysic frequency on micro-inflammation for the maintenance hemodialysis patients.
Methods: Maintenance hemodialysis 53 patients with chronic kidney disease were divided into 3 groups. Groups A, B, C dialysed 3 times per week, twice per week and 3 times per two weeks, respectively. Total time was one year. Index of micro-inflammation state was measured in all patients before and after one year.
Results: There were significantly difference in index of micro-inflammation state between any two groups.
Conclusions: Patients who dialysis lower than 2 times each week had higher rate of micro-inflammation state. This signed that dialysic frequence was important for maitenance hemodialysis.
