The low-density lipoprotein cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C/HDL-C) ratio constitutes a strong risk predictor of cardiovascular events. However, the association between this ratio and cardiovascular death in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients is uncertain. The study aimed to investigate whether a high LDL-C/HDL-C ratio could predict both cardiovascular and all-cause mortalities in patients on PD.
