Collection description

The Coronary Artery Calcifications in End Stage Renal Disease patients reflects the severity of the atherosclerotic vascular disease and predicts cardiovascular events. Epicardial Adipose Tissue is a biologically active organ that may play a role in the association between obesity and coronary artery disease. In the literature, there are few data regarding Epicardial Adipose Tissue in ESRD patients. Therefore, in the present discussion we aimed to investigate the relationship between EAT and CACS in Cronic Kidney Disease but especially in Peritoneal Dialysis patients.
