Özet

Background: Chronic infection and inflammation, including periodontitis, are linked to an increased risk for atherosclerosis. To investigate the possible adverse effects of periodontitis in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients, we compared periodontal severity with inflammation and malnutrition, which are associated with poor atherosclerotic outcome in CAPD patients.
