Abstract

Our study aimed to investigate the relationship between ankle-brachial index (ABI) and need for early renal replacement therapy (RRT) in predialysis patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). A total of 112 patients (62% men) with pre-dialysis CKD, seen in the outpatient clinic, were included, and ABI was obtained as per standard protocol. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) was defined as ABI <0.9 or >1.3 in either leg. The clinical data were analyzed, and the risk factors for early RRT were determined by multivariate logistic regression analysis. The prevalence of PAD was 44% in predialysis CKD patients. Over three years' follow- up, 14.2% required RRT; 11.3% developed major cardiovascular event (myocardial infarction, stroke, or death). A total of 26 events occurred. The incidence of all events was significantly higher in patients with abnormal ABI than in those with normal ABI (34.7% vs. 12.7%; log rank P = 0.02). PAD was associated with all events [hazard ratio (HR): 2.72; 95% CI: 1.04-7.17; P = 0.042] as also the need for RRT (HR 3.2; 95% Cl: 1.005-10.23; P = 0.049), on univariate cox proportional hazard analysis. Multivariate logistic regression analysis adjusted for other risk factors identified that PAD remained an independent predictor for the need for early RRT (HR: 12.2; 95%Cl: 2.2-66.5; P = 0.004) and all events (HR: 3.5; 95% Cl: 0.9-13.5; P = 0.032). PAD was an independent predictor for RRT requirement in predialysis CKD.
