Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases are considered the major cause of death in dialysis patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Recently, intensive hemodialysis has increasingly used and replaced conventional hemodialysis. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of intensive hemodialysis on LVH regression and blood pressure control. Methods: The present study is self-control, pre- and post-intervention clinical trial on hemodialysis ESRD patients with hypertension (52.5% female with a mean age of 55.55 ± 12.96), who were admitted to Imam Khomeini Hospitals, Golestan Ahvaz in 1396. All patients underwent intensive hemodialysis treatment 4 times a week for 2 months. 2-D color Doppler echocardiography was performed for all patients before the intervention and following 2 months of intensive hemodialysis. The results of chest echocardiographic were used to determine left ventricular thickness. Results: In this study, 40 patients with hypertension were studied. The results of this study showed a significant decrease (P < 0.0001) in the levels of LVH, SBP, DBP and mean BP after intervention in ESRD patients. The level of LVH was decreased from 15.42 ± 1.67 mmHg to 13.86 ± 1.39 mmHg, SBP from 161.50 ± 12.16 mmHg to 141.12 ± 8.87 mmHg, DBP from 25.25 ± 5.15 mmHg to 81/75 ± 2.89 mmHg, and mean BP from 114.66 ± 6.82 mmHg to 101/54 ± 3.98 mmHg. Conclusion: Based on the results, it can be concluded that intensive hemodialysis resulted in improved LVH regression and blood pressure control, and fewer requirements for blood pressure-lowering medications.
