Utility of echocardiography in the evaluation of coronary artery disease in patients with end-stage renal disease


, : Utility of echocardiography in the evaluation of coronary artery disease in patients with end-stage renal disease. Advances in Peritoneal Dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis 25: 129-132

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at increased risk of cardiovascular events. Echocardiography is an integral part of the evaluation of coronary artery disease. Chronic kidney disease has a predictable and unique effect on the myocardium and the epicardial circulation that may be detected by echocardiography. In particular dobutamine stress echocardiography has proved to be an invaluable tool in the detection of cardiovascular disease in patients with CKD. Here, we review the usefulness of echocardiography in the detection and evaluation of coronary artery disease in patients with CKD.
