Abstract

Patients with end-stage kidney failure suffer from various hemostatic disorders. Uremic patients show a bleeding tendency which is mainly due to abnormalities of platelet function. In a study on 36 stable hemodialysis patients, we found a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with mean platelet volume and also a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with proportion of hemodialysis. In diabetic hemodialysis patients, a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with serum intact parathormone was detected. In a study on 36 stable hemodialysis patients, we found a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with mean platelet volume and also a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with proportion of hemodialysis. In diabetic hemodialysis patients, a significant inverse correlation of platelet count with serum intact parathormone was detected. The clinical consequence of these findings needs more attention in hemodialysis patients.
