Özet

Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is accepted as a risk factor for coronary artery disease because it causes endothelial dysfunction and vasospasm. In this study we aimed to investigate the relationship between ADMA levels and echocardiographic and metabolic parameters in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients.
