Impact of estimated glomerular filtration rate on vascular disease extent and adverse cardiovascular events in patients without chronic kidney disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) predicts major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), though the effect of eGFR on MACE and vascular disease extent among individuals with normal or mildly impaired renal function requires definition. Our aim was to examine the prognostic implications of eGFR… (More)
