      Accepted manuscript online: 15 FEB 2017 12:10PM EST | DOI: 10.1111/nep.13033

      Summary at a Glance

      Left ventricular hyphertrophy (LVH) is one of important cardiovascular disease-related findings observed in patients with chronic kideny disease. This manuscript showed that the extent of circulationg volume expansion is potentially the main predictive factor for changes of LV mass index (LVMI) in children on perioneal dialysis. This finding will provide useful incormation in the field of pediaticl nephrology.
