Cardiovascular and noncardiovascular mortality among patients starting dialysis.

.   .   

This study evaluated whether the high overall mortality in patients starting dialysis is a consequence of increased cardiovascular mortality risk only or whether noncardiovascular mortality is equally increased. In this analysis, patients starting dialysis were found to have an increased risk of death not specifically caused by excess cardiovascular mortality.
