Association between glomerular filtration rate and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D in cardiac surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Renal impairment is a risk factor for poor clinical outcome in cardiac surgical patients and low circulating levels of the vitamin D hormone 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25[OH](2)D) may contribute to this risk. METHODS We investigated the association between glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and 1,25(OH)(2)D in 151 heart transplant recipients and… (More)
