Description Individuals with end-stage renal disease have a cardiovascular mortality rate that is 10 to 20 times greater than that in the general population. However, whether milder degrees of renal insufficiency are an independent predictor of cardiovascular outcomes is unclear. In several prospective studies, renal insufficiency, as documented by elevated creatinine levels, has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events and mortality. Renal insufficiency is associated with a high prevalence of traditional cardiovascular risk factors, which may explain the association with cardiovascular events. Renal insufficiency may also amplify the severity of these risk factors, thus promoting cardiovascular risk.
