Comparison of coronary atherosclerotic volume in patients with glomerular filtration rates < or = 60 versus > 60 ml/min/1.73 m(2): a meta-analysis of intravascular ultrasound studies.

Abstract

The relation between glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 ml/min/1.73 m(2) and the extent and progression of coronary atherosclerosis in 989 subjects with coronary artery disease was investigated. Despite being older, more likely to be women, and having a history of hypertension, diabetes, and bypass surgery, total atheroma volume and percent atheroma… (More)
