BACKGROUND Vascular calcifications and the bone fractures caused by abnormal bone fragility, also called osteoporotic fractures, are frequent complications associated with chronic kidney diseases (CKD). The aim of this study was to investigate the association between vascular calcifications, osteoporotic bone fractures and survival in haemodialysis (HD) patients. METHODS A total of 193 HD patients were followed up to 2 years. Vascular calcifications and osteoporotic vertebral fractures… CONTINUE READING
