Abstract

Methods. We aimed to clarify arteriosclerotic risk and to document possible relationships between cardiovascular risk factors and echocardiographic parameters in paediatric peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. M-mode/Doppler/tissue Doppler echocardiographic studies and lipid/lipoproteins, homocysteine, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (HS-CRP) levels and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) were determined in 59 patients (age: 14.2 +/- 4.5 years) and in 36 healthy subjects.
