Antihypertensive drug treatment is mostly ineffective in dialysis patients because these drugs cannot correct volume overload. Bibliography Agarwal I R.

1992). All of the patients (58% of the total) who were treated with long dialysis sessions in a center in the UK had normal BP (116/67) without drugs (Goldsmith et al. 1997). A Turkish center reported a mean BP of 131/80 ± 17/9 in all 67 patients treated with strict volume control during one year (Ozkahya et al. 1999 (Ch. 5)).
