Albuminuria is the most widely evaluated marker of kidney damage. Many previous studies have demonstrated an association between the presence of albuminuria and increased cardiovascular events. However, there are limited data regarding the impact of albuminuria in patients requiring coronary revascularization. This study investigated whether the urinary albumin excretion rate could predict cardiovascular events in such a population. We enrolled 698 consecutive patients who underwent elective… CONTINUE READING
