Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a highly prevalent condition with high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Objectives: the aim of the study was to analyze risk factors and treatments in the Uruguayan National Renal Healthcare Program (NRHP) and their association with cardiovascular events (CVE) and survival. Methods: this is a cohort study of patients included in the Uruguayan NRHP Registry, from 29/9/2006 to 31/12/2014. The inclusion criteria were age ³ 20 years, kidney disease for more than 3 months, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eFG) < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 and/or proteinuria >300 mg/day or albuminuria >30 mg/day in diabetics, with ³ 6 months under surveillance. The end-points were a new CV event, renal replacement therapy (RRT) or death. Results: 8.407 patients were included, mean age 68 ± 14 years, 56% males, 66,6% >65 years. Cardiovascular risk factors were highly prevalent. 2.245 new CVE were registered in 1.439 (18.9%) patients who survived (10.1/100 patient-year (pt-yr). 1.380 patients died, 32.7% of them from a CVE. RRT rate was 1.94 / 100 pt-yr, global mortality rate 6.2 and CV mortality rate 2.03 / 100 pt-yr. There was significant association between new CVE and traditional and CKD related risk factors, as well as a better outcome with good glycemic control and treatment with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition Conclusion: CKD patients have many CV risk factors and high mortality, so early detection and treatment strategies are important.
