M.A. MIR; K.C. HEARN
To the editor: Capelli and Kasparian (1) have provided an interesting contribution to our understanding of a rather neglected topic; namely, cardiac function in end-stage renal disease. The data that they have supplied support their statement that their patients had an increased left ventricular work load, but in some patients they admit discrepancy between clinical congestive cardiac failure and relatively normal indices of left ventricular function (Table 2). This is a problem in which we have been interested and we have recently made a noninvasive study of left ventricular function in 8 patients with end-stage renal disease and clinical congestive
