During the course of follow-up, 124 patients (51.7%) received a kidney transplant.These patients had a lower AT at study entry than those who had not yet received a transplant (mean ± SD 37.1%±8.7% versus 40.4%±10.5% predicted peak VO Baseline descriptive characteristics of the study cohort categorized to groups of survivors and nonsurvivors are presented in Table 1.
However, it is unclear whether such benefit applies to patients with poor cardiovascular reserve.
In this study, we sought to investigate whether AT , as an index of poor cardiovascular reserve, is associated with an increased mortality rate in patients with advanced CKD who were candidates for kidney transplantation.

The first executions under European law occurred on 2 October 1629 on Long Island in the Houtman Abrolhos of Western Australia, where seven crew members of the Dutch East India Company ship Batavia were hanged for mutiny and the subsequent massacre of 125 passengers and crew.
Within weeks of the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788 and the establishment of Sydney, New South Wales as the first permanent European settlement, Thomas Barrett became the first person to be executed in Australia under British law.However, there were no significant differences in the prevalence of other major risk factors such as diabetes, CKD duration, dyslipidemia, and hypertension between the groups.Low serum albumin (=0.01) were more prevalent among those who died compared with the survivors.The importance of this is underscored by a previously reported association between mortality and physical activity assessed through questionnaires in CKD patients.However, such an evaluation is limited due to its subjectivity and its inability to provide any information on cardiovascular reserve, thereby failing to accurately estimate response capacity to physiologic stress of exercise.Pencil on paper sketch of the execution of Michael Magee.
