Abstract: A retrospective review of 200 patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) was compared to 200 patients without CKD to investigate the incidence of bleeding. Logistic regression analysis identified CKD as an independent risk factor for bleeding (OR 1.82, 95% CI 1.02 - 3.25). CKD patients with ACS appear to have more bleeding complications.
