Progression of coronary and valvular heart disease in patients on dialysis.

Abstract

Coronary heart disease and end-stage renal disease: Coronary heart disease is frequent in patients with end-stage renal disease. Without invasive procedures coronary heart disease is often not diagnosed in patients with end-stage renal disease. We have no evidence for accelerated progression of coronary heart disease under conditions of dialysis. Valvular heart disease and end-stage renal disease: Valvular heart disease shows an increasing frequency depending on the period of dialysis. Valvular heart disease is often unnoticed and constantly underestimated without invasive investigation. Valvular heart disease often indicates a bad prognosis in our patients with end-stage renal disease.
