Abstract

Backgound: Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is a common precursor and denominator of cardiovascular events including development of atherosclerosis. In this cross-sectional, controlled study, we aimed to investigate ED measured by ischemia-induced forearm vasodilatation in chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients and renal transplant recipients (rTX).
