Abstract

The goal of developing a CKD-specific cardiovascular risk score remains elusive and difficult. One approach to develop such a score is to evaluate conventional cardiovascular risk factors in an outcomes model. Nontraditional risk factors such as albuminuria can then be tested to evaluate the predictive value of these markers over and above traditional risk factors for patient-level decision making.
