  author={A. Pathak and Lalit Jain and Aseem Garg},
Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases including coronary artery disease (CAD) are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. The main factors responsible for this increased risk besides traditional risk factors (such as higher age, smoking, diabetes, and hypertension (HTN) are uremia related which includes inflammation, oxidative stress, malnutrition, endothelial dysfunction, coronary artery calcification, hyperhomocysteinemia, left ventricular… Expand


Coronary Artery Disease in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Clinical Update
Screening for CAD is an important part of preoperative evaluation for kidney transplant candidates and Guideline-recommended therapies are, in general, underutilized in renal patients. Expand
An Update on Coronary Artery Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease
Despite the improvements in diagnostic tools and medical applications, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), especially coronary artery disease (CAD), remain the most common cause of morbidity and mortalityExpand
Association between renal insufficiency and inducible ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease: the heart and soul study.
The greater severity of atherosclerotic disease observed in patients with CRI may in part explain the association of CRI with increased cardiovascular risk among individuals with CAD. Expand
Cardiovascular risk in patients with mild renal insufficiency.
Observational data suggest that MRI, independent of etiology, is a strong predictor of cardiovascular disease, present in 10% of a population at low risk, and up to 30% at high cardiovascular risk. Expand
Cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease. A clinical update from Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO).
The current state of knowledge and the implications for patient care in important topic areas, including coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, and sudden cardiac death are defined.

High prevalence of occult coronary artery stenosis in patients with chronic kidney disease at the initiation of renal replacement therapy: an angiographic examination.
The results clearly demonstrated that despite the absence of cardiac events, stage 5 CKD patients are already in a very high risk group for CAS at the initiation of RRT, which was also closely associated with a significant decrease in ABI. Expand
Coronary artery disease in uremia: Etiology, diagnosis, and therapy.
This review examines the experimental and clinical literature on cardiovascular disease in uremia, focusing on coronary artery disease, and advocates aggressive control of conventional and novel cardiovascular risk factors, and early intervention for symptomatic coronary disease. Expand
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
Cardiovascular risk factors in chronic kidney disease.
It is proposed that patients with chronic kidney dis-ease are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease for several reasons. Expand
Detection of undiagnosed ischemic heart disease in hemodialysis patients using myocardial perfusion imaging
The prevalence of undiagnosed ischemic heart disease (IHD) in the HD patients was considerable and it is suggested that IHD be assessed in HD patients, especially those at high risk due to positive family history of CAD, hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, diabetes mellitus, low ferritin levels, and high levels of intact parathyroid hormone.
