- Cardiovascular risk is high in patients with renal failure.
- Cross-sectional studies have indicated a relationship between arterial stiffness and renal function. However, there are no prospective longitudinal studies in the literature.
- In dialysis patients, arterial stiffness as well as wave reflections, predict mortality. However, there are no data on patients with mild-to-moderate renal impairment available.
- Therefore, we designed a study to test the hypothesis that: a) measures of arterial stiffness and wave reflections predict the progression of renal impairment in patients with mild-to-moderate renal failure; and b) measures of arterial stiffness and wave reflections predict cardiovascular events in patients with mild-to-moderate renal failure
