Anemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism in chronically hemodialyzed patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A role in the pathogenesis of the anemia of chronic renal failure has been attributed to secondary hyperparathyroidism. An amelioration of anemia after subtotal parathyroidectomy has been described. In the present study, no correlation was found between the severity of anemia and the level of serum parathormone in dialyzed patients. Furthermore, in seven patients, no improvement of the anemia was observed after parathyroidectomy.
