Short Description
Disorders of mineral metabolism and bone disease are common complications in CKD patients and they are associated with increased morbidity and mortality and decreased quality of life. There is an increasing body of convincing evidence suggesting that these disorders are causally related to numerous adverse clinical outcomes, in particular cardiovascular disease, and increased fracture risk.

The major goals of this 2015 meeting will be to: 1) develop the evidentiary basis of the proposed recommendations by Guidelines; and 2) update the hottopics in the CKD MBD field

The association between bone and vascular pathology, dubbed “bone-vascular axis” has recently been described, and its interest has even extended to other medical specialties]. Indeed, the relationship between biomarkers of bone health and vascular calcification is a fascinating but complex phenomenon with many uncertain causal links that still remain to be fully elucidated.
