BACKGROUND p-Cresylsulfate (PCS), a protein-bound uraemic retention solute, is known to cause endothelial dysfunction and possibly plays a role in coronary atherosclerosis. Furthermore, the association among serum total PCS, major adverse cardiovascular events, and all-cause mortality were also found in previous studies. However, little is known about the relationship between total PCS level and prolonged QT interval. We assessed whether serum total PCS level is related with prolonged QT… CONTINUE READING
