INTRODUCTION Arterial stiffness is an important contributor to the increased cardiovascular burden of uremia. The aim of the study was to identify determinants of arterial stiffness progression in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients with strict volume control. PATIENTS AND METHODS 89 prevalent PD patients were enrolled. Assessment of arterial stiffness was performed at baseline and after nine months on average (range 8 - 12 months) by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV). RESULTS Mean… CONTINUE READING
