AIM There is limited information about arterial stiffness in chronic kidney disease (CKD) which is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular events. Pulse wave velocity (PWV), augmentation index (AIx) are using to determine arterial stiffness. We aimed to study PWV, AIx, volume status in patients with stage 3B-5 CKD and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). METHODS Sixty-six stage 3B-5 CKD patients, 21 CAPD patients, 34 healthy controls were included. Pulse wave velocity, AIx… CONTINUE READING
