Abdominal Aortic Calcification is an Independent Predictor of Cardiovascular Events in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients
Therapeutic Apheresis and Dialysis, 06/20/2012
Martino F et al. – The authors have shown for the first time that abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) score is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events in peritoneal dialysis patients. Risk stratification by assessment of AAC score may provide important information for the management of cardiovascular disease in peritoneal dialysis patients without any additional expense, because these patients have several abdominal X–ray scans to evaluate the catheter position.
