Biomarkers and Cardiac Disease in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease on Dialysis
Very soon after troponin was introduced to routine clinical use in the mid-1990s, it was observed that troponin T was often increased in the blood of asymptomatic patients undergoing chronic dialysis for end-stage renal disease. Observation of these patients showed that the presence of troponin T in blood was predictive of a worse outcome for these patients. Cardiac disease is the major cause of death in dialysis patients. This review considers the heterogeneous cardiac disease that is found in...[Show more]
