Abstract
Vascular calcification (VC) and atherosclerosis are associated with an increased cardiovascular morbimortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Osteoprotegerin (OPG) and osteopontin (OPN) are involved in both VC and CKD. Soluble tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (sTWEAK) has been related to cardiovascular disease. We hypothesized that OPG, OPN and sTWEAK levels may be associated with a higher prevalence of cardiovascular outcomes in patients with CKD.
