OBJECTIVE: Early arterial stiffness has been shown in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) patients with preserved renal function. However, to our knowledge, no prospective study evaluated changes in arterial functions in patients with ADPKD. The study aimed to monitor the changes in renal and arterial functions in patients with ADPKD with preserved renal functions.
