Background. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Arterial stiffness is an independent predictive parameter of overall and cardiovascular mortality in these patients. However, the defined procedures for the measurement of arterial stiffness are time consuming and not practical in daily practice.
