In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and heart failure (HF), volume overload is a major problem. Removal of fluid during the dialysis treatment, is the cornerstone management in these conditions but, assessing the amount of volume that should be removed is a challenge since physical exam findings are not accurate. Ambulatory pulmonary artery (PA) pressure measurement is a promising intervention in HF that potentially could be used as well in CKD population, predicting volume status changes and allowing a promptly intervention. We presented two cases of patient with CKD, HF and cardioMEMS
