Abstract

Background. Endothelial dysfunction is common in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD), and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality are higher in these patients. In this study, we evaluated the late posttransplantation effects of cyclosporine and tacrolimus on endothelial function, inflammation, and cardiac architecture.
