We prospectively assessed the evolution of coronary artery calcification (CAC) and osteoprotegerin (OPG) levels after renal transplantation (RT). Eighty-three recipients were followed-up prospectively during 1 year. Blood was collected before (baseline) and after RT for determination of mineral metabolism parameters including OPG. CAC was measured by multidetector computed tomography at transplantation (baseline) and 1 year later. Progression of CAC was defined as a difference between the… CONTINUE READING
