Abstract CKD is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and valvular disease. In addition to having a high prevalence of traditional CVD risk factors such as diabetes and hypertension, persons with CKD are also exposed to other non-traditional, uremia-related cardiovascular disease risk factors. Management of CAD and valvular disease is complicated in CKD patients given their likelihood of comorbid conditions and potential for side effects. A better understanding of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of CAD and valvular disease in CKD is therefore necessary Learning Objectives 1. To understand the epidemiology, risk factors and use of risk equations to estimate CAD and valvular disease in CKD 2. To describe the pathophysiology and diagnosis of CAD and valvular disease in CKD 3. To appreciate treatment options for CAD and valvular disease in CKD 4. To prioritize research questions with regards to CAD and valvular disease in CKD Speaker Biography Dr. Sarnak is Chief of the Division of Nephrology and Professor of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine. His research focuses on traditional and non-traditional CVD risk factors in CKD, cognitive function and CKD and novel biomarkers of CKD. His research is funded by the NIDDK and the NIA and he is a previous Garabed Eknoyan Awardee of the NKF. He was on the Steering Committee for both the KDIGO Controversies Conference on Heart Failure in CKD and Blood Pressure (BP) in CKD and is currently a Steering Committee Member of the KDIGO BP Guideline Update that will take place in 2019.
