    Hemodialysis with high-calcium dialysate impairs cardiac relaxation. Background. During hemodialysis (HD), serum ionized calcium is directly related to the dialysate calcium concentration. We have recently shown an acute induction of hypercalcemia to impair left ventricular (LV) relaxation. In...

    The article presents a case of hypercalcemia, which is occasionally seen in malignant lymphoma, and large abdominal mass. Common cause of lymphoma-related hypercalcemia reportedly include overproduction of calcitriol and PTH-related protein and local osteolysis which is induced by inflammatory...
