Abstract: Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality are massively increased in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Sevelamer hydrochloride has been shown to attenuate cardiovascular calcifications in CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. We assessed how sevelamer hydrochloride influences the evolution of serum fetuin-A and other serological factors predicting cardiovascular outcome and survival in haemodialysis patients.
