Challenging cardiovascular diseases
Despite tremendous improvements in the quality and efficacy of haemodialysis (HD) therapy in recent years, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Almost one in two patients with ESRD still dies as the results of CVD; a markedly higher mortality rate than in the general population.1
Fresenius Medical Care continues to contribute towards improving the prognosis of ESRD patients. We make every effort to slow down progression of atherosclerosis and protect cardiac function by providing therapies aimed at reducing the complications of CVD.
Cardioprotection in haemodialysis is a core principle behind Fresenius Medical Care as we work and learn to solve the issues of modern dialysis. All that we do reflects our focus on minimising cardiovascular risk and extending patient lives.
