Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is closely related to cardiovascular disease (CVD), presenting a major risk factor for the development of cardiovascular issues such as coronary artery disease, heart failure, and stroke.
One reason for this is the presence of traditional cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia, which are highly prevalent in patients with CKD. These risk factors contribute to the development of atherosclerosis, which is the underlying cause of most CVD.
CKD is also associated with several non-traditional risk factors that increase the risk of CVD. These include inflammation, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, vascular calcification, anemia, malnutrition, uremic toxins, and mineral and bone disorder, all of which contribute to the development of artherosclerosis and other cardiovascular issues in patients with CKD.
Management of CKD and CVD involves addressing both traditional and non-traditional risk factors. Treatment of hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia is essential to reduce the risk of CVD in patients with CKD. Lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise, healthy diet, and smoking cessation are also important. In some cases, medications to control non-traditional risk factors may be used to reduce the risk of CVD.
This Special Issue will offer a platform for clinicians and basic researchers to present and discuss novel issues in the association between CKD and CVD. The published papers will significantly contribute to a better understanding of CKD’s associations with CVD and will address both traditional and non-traditional risk factors, aiming to reduce the risk of CVD in patients with CKD.
