Effects of Reduced Kidney Function Because of Living Kidney Donation on Left Ventricular Mass.

Abstract

Living kidney donation is associated with a small but significant increase in cardiovascular mortality. In addition, mildly decreased kidney function is associated with an increase of left ventricular mass and with cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease. To investigate this association, we evaluated the impact of mildly decreased… (More)
