Synopsis: 
Vascular calcification is a real problem related to chronic kidney disease, usually estimated by imaging methods. This study provided evidence on the quantitative increase of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in the vascular wall in long-term dialysis patients undergoing transplantation. Knowing this type of data can help us to better understand and improve the prognosis of our patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Vascular calcification contributes to cardiovascular disease on dialysis patients. Arterial mineral content is modified but not well defined. We aim to define what is the concentration of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the epigastric artery of adult dialysis patients undergoing renal transplantation.
