Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease (KCVD)

Núria M. Pastor-Soler, MD, PhD, FASN

The American Heart Association (AHA) Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease (KCVD) mission is to reduce cardiovascular-related disability and death through research, communication, advocacy and education about the kidney.

Kidney disease is a major cause and a consequence of cardiovascular disease. Chronic renal insufficiency is thought to be an independent risk factor for developing hypertension, vascular disease, atherosclerosis and other morbidity and mortality risk factors. Patients with cardiovascular disease and diabetes are also at high risk for developing kidney failure.
