[Control of hypertension refractory to medical management by means of short daily hemodialysis].

Nefrologia. 2008;28(1):99-101, PMID: 18336139

Hypertension is a very frequent complication in patients in hemodialysis. A high percentage of the patients on standard hemodialysis remain hypertense in spite of intensive pharmacologic treatment. We presented the case of a hypertense patient with difficult control in spite of antihypertensive treatment with five drugs and several secondary complications. The change to a short daily hemodialysis was successful to hypertension control and allowed a gradual suspension of drugs.
