Arterial stiffness is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with end-stage renal failure. However, little is known about the factors that contribute to arterial rigidity in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aim of this study was to define the pattern and determinants of the longitudinal change in arterial stiffness after PD initiation. Arterial stiffening was estimated for 46 PD patients by using brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT). The cross-sectional relationship …
