Comparison of vascular calcification scoring systems using plain radiographs to predict vascular stiffness in peritoneal dialysis patients.

Abstract

AIM Vascular stiffness is associated with cardiovascular mortality in dialysis patients and related with vascular calcification and microvascular inflammation. The objective of this study is to compare predictability of two different vascular calcification scoring systems using plain radiographs in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS Vascular… (More)
