The recent Kidney Disease: Improving Quality Outcomes (KDIGO) recommendations called for an investigation of the relationship between various radiological methods to assess cardiovascular calcification and measures of arterial stiffness. Accordingly, in 131 adult maintenance hemodialysis patients, we investigated the association of aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) with calcification of cardiac valves on echocardiography, coronary artery, and thoracic aorta calcium on computed tomography and a… CONTINUE READING
