Kidney disease as a risk factor for development of cardiovascular disease: a statement from the American Heart Association Councils on Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure Research,
There was a high prevalence of CVD in CKD and that mortality due to CVD was 10 to 30 times higher in dialysis patients than in the general population, and the task force recommended that patients with CKD be considered in the “highest risk group” for subsequent CVD events. Expand
Clinical epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in chronic renal disease.
Epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in chronic renal disease.
Patients with chronic renal disease should be considered in the highest risk group for subsequent cardiovascular events, and patients who develop clinical manifestations of cardiac failure should be evaluated for cardiovascular disease. Expand
Chronic kidney disease as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality: a pooled analysis of community-based studies.
CKD is a risk factor for the composite outcome of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease in the general population and a more pronounced risk factor in blacks than in whites and it is hypothesized that this effect may be due to more frequent or more severe subclinical vascular disease secondary to hypertension or diabetes in black individuals. Expand
Multiple loci associated with indices of renal function and chronic kidney disease
These findings provide new insights into CKD pathogenesis and underscore the importance of common genetic variants influencing renal function and disease. Expand
Cystatin C and the risk of death and cardiovascular events among elderly persons.
Cystatin C, a serum measure of renal function, is a stronger predictor of the risk of death and cardiovascular events in elderly persons than is creatinine. Expand
Level of kidney function as a risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular outcomes in the community.
The level of GFR is an independent risk factor for ASCVD and de novo ASCVD in the ARIC study, and a nonlinear model did not fit the data better than a linear model. Expand
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risks in chronic hemodialysis patients.
It is suggested that traditional risk factors are inadequate predictors of coronary heart disease in hemodialysis patients, while other factors did not correlate with atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases in this cross-sectional study. Expand
Cystatin C and Prognosis for Cardiovascular and Kidney Outcomes in Elderly Persons without Chronic Kidney Disease
It is hypothesized that cystatin C would be an important prognostic factor for risk for death, cardiovascular disease, and incident chronic kidney disease, whereas estimated GFR and creatinine would be unable to distinguish levels of risk. Expand
Cystatin C versus creatinine in determining risk based on kidney function.
The use of cystatin C alone or in combination with creatinine strengthens the association between the eGFR and the risks of death and end-stage renal disease across diverse populations. Expand
