Introduction. Recent studies report reduced vascular compliance and elevated levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and preserved kidney function. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between vascular compliance and FGF23 in patients in early phases of ADPKD.
