Cardiac biomarkers Troponin T (TnT) and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (proBNP) and abdominal aortic calcification score (AAC) are associated with cardiovascular events and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The effects of cardiac biomarkers and AAC on maximal exercise capacity in CKD are unknown and were studied.
