Screening Kidney Function in People With Carotid Artery Disease May Help In Development Of Early Intervention Strategies

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a progressive reduction in the kidneys’ ability to filter blood. People with CKD have greatly increased mortality risk in comparison to the non-CKD population, with cardiovascular disease being the cause of death in almost half of all cases.
