From: Vascular function assessed with cardiovascular magnetic resonance predicts survival in patients with advanced chronic kidney disease

  1. Cox survival analysis for patient survival to either death or cardiovascular event. Because of their close correlation SBP aortic distensibilty and aortic VAS were entered separately into the model. Results for other variables are shown with systolic blood pressure in the model.
