Assessment of Coronary Artery Calcification in Chronic Dialysis Patients

Coronary artery calcifications (CAC) are highly prevalent in asymptomatic maintenance dialysis patients (MHP), detection and surveillance of such coronary disease could be helpful in clinical practice. In cross-sectional study conducted in our dialysis Unit, including 49 MHP, We have assessed and quantified coronary artery calcification and theirs risk factors. Detection and quantification of coronary calcifications were made by Multi Slice Cardio Tomography (MSCT) a high-speed scanner 64 row. The total volume and the density of calcifications were assessed in six coronary arteries with determination of calcium coronary Agatston score (CCAS)
