Excess Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus Deposition in Epigastric Artery of Dialysis Patients Undergoing Renal Transplantation

Vascular calcification is a real problem related to chronic kidney disease, usually estimated by imaging methods. Our study evidences the cuantitative increased of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in vascular wall in long-term dialysis patients undergoing transplantation. Knowing this kind of data can help us to better understand and improve the prognosis of our patients.


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