Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Ultrasound measurements of the intima media thickness (IMT) in the carotid arteries is a strong predictor for cardiovascular events in the general population and dialysis patients. However, it is unclear whether carotid IMT is useful for the prediction of cardiovascular events in predialysis patients with CKD. The prediction power of carotid ultrasonography for cardiovascular event, rate of renal function… CONTINUE READING
