Women on Dialysis Face Higher Risk of Cardiovascular Events, Yet Lower Mortality Rates Than Men

6 May 2024 • A sweeping study evaluating over 500,000 patients initiating dialysis revealed that women face a 14% higher risk of cardiovascular events, including heart failure and stroke, compared to men, despite having a lower risk of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality.
