PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: Impaired bone quality contributes to the increased fracture risk in chronic kidney disease patients. Both low and high turnover bone disease may compromise bone quality. The question arises whether bone biomarkers may be additive or replace bone histormorphometry for diagnosing the extremes of bone turnover. RECENT FINDINGS: Studies exploring the performance of established and emerging bone biomarkers against histomorphometric assessment of bone turnover are limited and overall yield inconclusive results as to their diagnostic utility. Bone biomarkers, although promising, currently fail to meet the needed diagnostic accuracy to replace bone histomorphometry and thus are not yet ready for clinical use. Bone biomarkers have not only several advantages, but also important limitations such as high biological variability, retention with kidney disease, preanalytical issues, and interassay variability. These important issues must be considered when developing and evaluating bone biomarkers. There is an urgent need for harmonization and standardization of available assays and additional bone biopsy studies. [less ▲]

Les patients hémodialysés sont exposés à un risque cardiovasculaire accru et les calcifications vasculaires sont considérées comme un marqueur de cette augmentation de risque. L'étude CORD (Calcification Outcome in Renal Disease) revêt dès lors un intérêt particulier. Elle vise initialement à déterminer la prévalence et la sévérité des calcifications de l'aorte abdominale chez les patients dialysés et à identifier les facteurs prédictifs de ces calcifications. Elle ouvre également des perspectives importantes en matière de prévention et d'attitude thérapeutique. Quatre experts nous livrent leurs commentaires à ce propos. [less ▲]
