A meta-analysis of the role of statins on renal outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease. Is the duration of therapy important?
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Beyond established risk factors these patients have additional predictors of CVD such as proteinuria, electrolyte imbalances, inflammation, increased oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction that greatly amplify vascular risk. Dyslipidemia is an independent risk factor for the progression of CKD.
