Özet

Objective Hyperuricemia and arterial stiffness are associated with increased cardiovascular risk. The specific relationship between arterial stiffness and serum uric acid (SUA) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients has not been investigated. We investigated whether the SUA level is associated with arterial stiffness in hypertensive CKD patients.
