Prevalence of modifiable cardiovascular risk factors in long-term renal transplant patients.

Vivek V, Bhandari S - Int J Nephrol Renovasc Dis (2010)

Bottom Line: Multivariable analysis was performed on those factors found to achieve a P value of less than 0.20 after univariate analysis to test for significance in relation to cardiovascular risk as the primary factor.Univariate analysis revealed diabetes and age, and subsequent multivariable analysis revealed age only, as being significantly associated with cardiovascular outcomes.Age is an important determinant of cardiovascular risk.

f4-ijnrd-3-175: Blood pressure control in transplant patients with (NODAT) and without (ND) new onset diabetes after transplantation.Abbreviations: BP, blood pressure; ND, nondiabetics; NODAT, new onset diabetes after transplantation.

Mentions: A history of or current hypertension requiring therapy was present in 68% of ND and 87% of NODAT patients. Systolic blood pressure and pulse pressure were significantly higher in NODAT (P = 0.016 and P < 0.005, respectively, Figure 4). ACE inhibitors and/or angiotensin II receptor antagonists were used in 40% of NODAT and 48% of ND patients. Eleven female and five male patients had a systolic blood pressure greater than 140 mmHg (all on treatment), four female and six male patients had a diastolic blood pressure greater than 90 mmHg (all but one on therapy), and three each had both elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Adequate target blood pressures (<140/90 mmHg) were obtained in 80% of patients. Twenty-nine patients (23% versus 22% for ND and NODAT, respectively) had electrocardiographic criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy, with no statistically significant difference found between groups. Albumin and uric acid levels were similar in both groups and not related to cardiac events.
