Carotid intima-media thickness in patients with end-stage renal disease

Carotid intima-media thickness in patients with end-stage renal disease

Indian Journal of Nephrology 19(1): 13-14

Accelerated atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease are major causes of morbidity and mortality in patients of end-stage renal disease. Carotid intima media thickness is taken as a useful surrogate marker of atherosclerosis. Thirty end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients were subjected to ultrasonography to study CIMT before the initiation of dialysis. CIMT was found to be higher in ESRD patients than in controls. Levels of a serum marker of oxidative stress were also found to be higher in patients than in the controls. CIMT is an easy, noninvasive, reproducible, and cost-effective investigation in patients with chronic renal failure.
