Abstract

Background: Cardiovascular (CV) mortality is common in hemodialysis (HD) patients. There are some difficulties involved in determining CV risk. Galectin-3 is a molecule with a demonstrated correlation with CV mortality and which is approved in the stratification of heart failure (HF) risk. The purpose of this study was to assess the previously uninvestigated relationship between galectin-3 and cardiac mortality in HD patients.
