Abstract

The incidence of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) is high and still growing. It is connected with demographic changes, as well as epidemics of civilization-related diseases, such as diabetes, arterial hypertension, obesity. As the active renal parenchyma is lost, the amount of complications accompanying the disease increases. One of the most frequent complications is the development of secondary hyperparathyroidism, which stimulates the occurrence of cardiovascular complications. The authors of the study presented risk factors for vascular lesions in secondary hyperparathyroidism, the most frequent type of histological lesions in the cardiovascular system, as well as the principles for prevention and treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism.
