RAAS inhibition in patients with kidney disease: Balancing the benefits and risks

10' education - July 12, 2019 - ERA-EDTA 2019 - Prof. Patrick Rossignol, MD - Nancy, France - Online CME

Although RAAS inhibition reduces proteinuria and hypertension in cardio-renal patients, it is associated with increased risk of hyperkalemia. Prof. Rossignol shares data on the addition of patiromer in patients using spironolactone for the management of CKD with resistant hypertension.
