Abstract

INTRODUCTION Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) are often both present in selected populations. The independent association of early renal disease and atherosclerosis has not been studied in the general population. We hypothesized that the presence of low ankle brachial index (ABI), a surrogate measure of… (More)
