Abstract

In a prospective study of 98 persons > or = 65 years of age with chronic renal insufficiency (serum creatinine > 3.0 mg/dl) for > 1 year and 98 age- and sex-matched persons with normal renal function (serum creatinine < or = 1.2 mg/dl), new coronary events developed at 23-month follow-up in 69 persons (70%) with chronic renal insufficiency and at 48-month follow-up in 24 persons (24%) with normal renal function (p < 0.0001). Significant independent risk factors for new coronary events were age (risk ratio 1.1), prior coronary artery disease (risk ratio 3.5), complex ventricular arrhythmias diagnosed by 24-hour ambulatory electrocardiography (risk ratio 2.5), silent myocardial ischemia diagnosed by 24-hour ambulatory electrocardiography (risk ratio 1.9), and chronic renal insufficiency (risk ratio 3.4).
