Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Most deaths in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) are attributable to cardiovascular disease (CVD). The relationship between serum asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and CVD has been investigated. We aimed to search the relationship between serum ADMA, atherosclerosis, inflammation and cardiac functions in ADPKD.
