Cardiovascular Disease

Patients with CKD have a high prevalence of all forms of cardiovascular problems, and are likely to be as susceptible to heart disease as patients with ESRD. Very often these patients do not present with typical cardiac symptoms. Percutaneous interventions are known to be associated with high risk of short term complications in patients with CKD and such procedures should be considered carefully.
