High Resolution Imaging of Retinal Vessels as a Biomarker of Cardiovascular Disease in Patients With Renal Insufficiency - RI

Summary

The objectives are to better understand, in the dialysis patient, the relationships between microvascular morphometry and cardiovascular events, survival, arterial hypertension, the pathology responsible for renal failure, the age of dialysis and metabolic parameters.

We also want to better understand the relationship between the diameter of small arteries and parameters such as hypertension, the pathology that causes kidney failure, the age of dialysis, the use of VKA or EPO, metabolic parameters (HbA1c, NFS, reticulocytes, BNP, lipid balance, phosphocalcic balance).

Description

The cardiovascular morbidity of a dialysis patient is 10 times higher than that of a subject in the general population. The patient with renal insufficiency is therefore at high cardiovascular risk. An increase in the wall-to-lumen ratio (WLR) is an early sign of microvascular damage, predictive of the risk of a cardiovascular event. The benefits of WLR measurement are therefore at the level of both the diagnosis and prognosis of vascular disease. Recently, a fundus camera coupled with an adaptive optics system has been able to measure for the first time in vivo non-invasively and reproducibly the wall thickness of the small arteries of the retina, and therefore the WLR, among other biomarkers relating to microvascular remodelling.

Studies in hypertension have confirmed that the rtX1 camera allows reliable and reproducible measurements of the WLR. The main aim of our study is to evaluate the value of the WLR as a biomarker of the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with renal insufficiency.

The waist circumference measurement divided by the hip circumference measurement. For both men and women, a waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) of 1.0 or higher is considered "at risk" for undesirable health consequences, such as heart disease and ailments associated with OVERWEIGHT. A healthy WHR is 0.90 or less for men, and 0.80 or less for women. (National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2004)

A technique of diagnostic imaging of RETINA or CORNEA of the human eye involving the measurement and interpretation of polarizing ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES such as radio or light waves. It is helpful in the diagnosis of GLAUCOMA; MACULAR DEGENERATION; and other retinal disorders.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Discrete abnormal tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the DIGESTIVE TRACT or the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Polyps can be spheroidal, hemispheroidal, or irregular mound-shaped structures attached to the MUCOUS MEMBRANE of the lumen wall either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
