Özet

Objective: Endothelin (ET), a vasoactive mediator, like others which originate from the endothelium or circulating cells, may participate in myocardial injury. In full-term neonates of mild pre-eclamptic mothers (NMPM), it identifies minor myocardial damage missed by other biochemical markers. The present study was designed to determine the diagnostic value of ET concentrations in NMPM.
