BACKGROUND Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a strong independent predictor of overall and cardiovascular mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Nevertheless, because age, blood pressure, heart rate, and gender are strong determinants of both arterial stiffness and mortality, the individual relevance of PWV measurements remains controversial. METHODS A cohort of 242 patients with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis was studied for a mean (+/- SD) duration of 78 +/- 46 months… CONTINUE READING
