Özet

Background. Endothelial dysfunction and injury are thought to have a key role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. We hypothesized that the presence of circulating endothelial cells, as a reflection of ongoing endothelial injury, might provide a novel means for predicting cardiovascular events in hemodialysis subjects who are known to be at marked increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
