Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death among patients with endstage renal disease and accounts for about half the deaths among the dialysis population. Several researchers have reported a high prevalence of coronary artery disease among diabetic patients with renal failure and coronaryarteriography is often considered an integral part of the pretransplant evaluation of diabetic patients with end stage renal disease. However, very few reports have addressed the question of coronary disease in non-diabetic patients, and the pattern and prevalence of coronary artery disease in non-diabetic patients with end stage renal disease are not well defined. We evaluated the clinical and coronary angiographic findings in 158 consecutive patients (84 diabetic and 74 non-diabetic) with end stage renal disease. Thecoronary arteries were divided into 16 segments and each segment was analyzed for the presence of coronary disease, which was defined as the presenceof greater than or equal to 50% luminal diameter stenosis. Diabetic patients had more adverse risk factors for coronary artery disease, yet there wasno significant difference in the prevalence of coronary artery disease between the diabetic and non-diabetic patients (67% vs. 55%, p = 0.15), or in the number of affected coronary artery segments (2.0 vs. 1.4, p = 0.05). Triple vessel coronary artery disease was however, significantly more common among the diabetic subjects (27% vs. 12%, p = 0.005). Non-diabetic patientswith end stage renal disease also have a high prevalence of coronary artery disease and may merit as careful investigation of their coronary status as their diabetic counterparts.
