Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Knowledge about the inhibition of centrally located angiotensin-I (AT-I) receptors by highly lipophilic AT-I receptor blockers and its' effect are limited with experimental studies. Thus, we aimed to investigate the effect of Telmisartan on Inter-dialytic weight gain (IDWG) % and echocardiographic measurements in anuric hemodialysis (HD) patients.
