Abstract

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) suffer from high rates of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The general approach to traditional cardiovascular risk factor modification via dyslipidemia control has not been thoroughly tested in patients with all stages of CKD. In this article, we review the evidence for statin therapy in patients at various stages of CKD, including patients with CKD on dialysis and patients with kidney transplants.
