Additional Information

Official title The Cardiovascular Protective Effects of Febuxostat in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients: a Prospective Cohort Study
Description Patients with more than 3-month-history of peritoneal dialysis and hyperuricemia. Use Febuxostat to control their serum uric acid for 1 year. To observe the cardiovascular events of patients, and compare and evaluate the changes of heart function, heart construction, serum cardiac markers and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels before and after Febuxostat treatment.
