Abstract

Dialysis during pregnancy is a rare event associated with a poor outcome. The acute fluid volume shifts during hemodialysis are suspected to be one of the reasons for the high rate of complications during the procedure. This is the first report of uteroplacental and fetoplacental perfusion assessment during acute hemodialysis in pregnancy. The results of the Doppler measurements suggest that the maternal-fetal circulation can successfully tolerate acute volume shifts provoked by hemodialysis.
