Canadian-Australasian Randomized Trial of Screening Kidney Transplant Candidates for Coronary Artery Disease (CARSK)
Patients on the waiting list for kidney transplantation are at risk for coronary artery disease (CAD). The optimal strategy to monitor and maintain the cardiac fitness of these patients is unknown. Currently patients without any symptoms of CAD undergo annual testing to determine if they have disease. This study will determine if screening is necessary.
