Arterial media calcification in end-stage renal disease: impact on all-cause and cardiovascular mortality.
TLDR
AMC is a strong prognostic marker of all-cause and CV mortality in HD patients, independently of classical atherogenic factors and the principal effect of AMC on arterial function is increased arterial stiffness.
Impact of aortic stiffness on survival in end-stage renal disease.
TLDR
These results provide the first direct evidence that in patients with ESRD, increased aortic stiffness determined by measurement of aorta pulse-wave velocity is a strong independent predictor of all-cause and mainly cardiovascular mortality.
Determinants of pulse wave velocity in healthy people and in the presence of cardiovascular risk factors: ‘establishing normal and reference values’
TLDR
This study is the first to establish reference and normal values for PWV, combining a sizeable European population after standardizing results for different methods of PWV measurement.
Arterial Calcifications, Arterial Stiffness, and Cardiovascular Risk in End-Stage Renal Disease
TLDR
The results of this study showed that the presence and extent of vascular calcifications were strong predictors of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality and carotid incremental elastic modulus gave additional predictive value.
Effect of cinacalcet on cardiovascular disease in patients undergoing dialysis.
TLDR
In an unadjusted intention-to-treat analysis, cinacalcet did not significantly reduce the risk of death or major cardiovascular events in patients with moderate- to-severe secondary hyperparathyroidism who were undergoing dialysis.
Arterial stiffening and vascular calcifications in end-stage renal disease.
TLDR
The presence of vascular calcifications in ESRD patients was associated with increased stiffness of large capacity, elastic-type arteries, like the aorta and CCA, and the extent of arterial calcifications increased with the use of calcium-based phosphate-binders.
Arterial Wave Reflections and Survival in End-Stage Renal Failure
TLDR
Results provide the first direct evidence that in ESRF patients increased effect of arterial wave reflections is an independent predictor of all-cause and CV mortality.
Circulating endothelial microparticles are associated with vascular dysfunction in patients with end-stage renal failure.
TLDR
It is suggested that circulating microparticles of endothelial origin are tightly associated with endothelial dysfunction and arterial dysfunction in patients with ESRF.
Central Pulse Pressure and Mortality in End-Stage Renal Disease
TLDR
Results provide the first direct evidence that in patients with ESRD, the carotid PP level and, mostly, the disappearance of PP amplification are strong independent predictors of all-cause (including cardiovascular) mortality.
Impact of Aortic Stiffness Attenuation on Survival of Patients in End-Stage Renal Failure
TLDR
In ESRF patients, the insensitivity of PWV to decreased BP is an independent predictor of mortality and that use of ACE inhibitors has a favorable effect on survival that is independent of BP changes.
