OBJECTIVES We sought to determine whether the addition of spironolactone to angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) improves left ventricular mass and(More)
PURPOSE To compare cardiovascular magnetic resonance-feature tracking (CMR-FT) with spatial modulation of magnetization (SPAMM) tagged imaging for the calculation of short and long axis Lagrangian(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormal left ventricular (LV) deformation is an independent predictor of poor cardiovascular outcome in end-stage renal disease. Studies in early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) have(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between serum phosphate, arterial stiffness and left ventricular mass (LVM) in patients with early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD). DESIGN A cross-sectional(More)
Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is a strong predictor of cardiovascular event rates in the general population, and scoring with multislice computed tomography commonly is used to improve risk(More)
