Abstract

Low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and body mass index (BMI) have been known as poor prognostic factors in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Besides, high BMI was associated with higher survival rate in patients on dialysis as well. However, the relation of eGFR and BMI to mortality has not been clarified in non-dialysis CAD patients.
