Diameter of inferior caval vein and impedance analysis for assessment of hydration status in peritoneal dialysis


, : Diameter of inferior caval vein and impedance analysis for assessment of hydration status in peritoneal dialysis. Artificial Organs 24(7): 575-577

In 19 stable peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, hydration status was evaluated by measurement of vena cava diameter (VCD) and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) variables: intracellular water (ICW), extracellular water (ECW), and total body water (TBW). We investigated whether BIA can replace VCD. VCD did not correlate with TBW but correlated moderately with ECW/TBW (r = 0.42; 0.025 < p < 0.05) and ICW/ECW (r = -0.47; p < 0.025). Patients with underhydration (n = 4; VCD <8 mm/m2) revealed limits for BIA variables as ICW/ECW (>1.50) and ECW/TBW (<0.40). The same held true for overhydration (n = 5; VCD >11.5 mm/m2): ICW/ECW (<1.50) and ECW/TBW (>0.40). Although the positive predictive value of ICW/ECW and ECW/TBW for both under- and overhydration was only 50% and 54%, respectively, there were no false negative values. Although BIA cannot replace VCD in PD patients, the reverse holds true as well. Combining BIA and VCD may lead to a better estimation of hydration status because both techniques provide complementary information.
