Coronary artery disease is very frequent in dialysis patients, and influences their survival while on dialysis and even after renal transplantation. There are problems with screening tools in that they have reduced sensitivity and specificity in the uraemic individual. There is a real need for additional and complementary markers of coronary disease in these patients. We discuss some novel ideas for screening and for intervention in this most challenging clinical setting.
