BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Abnormal left ventricular structure and function are associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes among patients with CKD and ESRD. A better understanding of changes in left ventricular mass and ejection fraction during the transition from CKD to ESRD may provide important insights to opportunities to improve cardiac outcomes. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS This was a longitudinal study of a subset of participants of the Chronic Renal… CONTINUE READING
