Chronic renal failure is a highly complicated occurrence, with severe metabolic and functional changes affecting almost the entirety of body organs. Coronary artery syndrome and angina events are encountered with an increased prevalence among patients suffering from renal failure, even more during end-stage renal injury. We have studied retrospectively a group of patients suffering from a coronary episode concomitant to the chronic renal failure which served as the background disorder. Patients suffering from chronic renal failure will present higher morbidity and mortality when a stenotic coronary artery will become symptomatic. Metabolic changes following renal dysfunction play an important role toward the acceleration of atherosclerotic changes commonly found in this group of patients. A holistic approach to all accompanying risk factors, through an individualized and timely pharmacological treatment will help producing better final outcomes for chronic renal failure patients that present with a coronary artery episode.
