BACKGROUND Small, uncontrolled studies of dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients have demonstrated abnormalities of cardiovascular autonomic control and vascular compliance, which may contribute to adverse cardiovascular morbidity in this population. However, there is little information utilizing newer, noninvasive techniques in predialysis patients with increasing degrees of uremia. METHODS One hundred and five nondialysis CKD patients with a median GFR of 23 mL/min/1.73 m… CONTINUE READING
