Abstract

Background. Endothelial dysfunction is an important factor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, and endothelial microparticles (EMPs) are considered as markers of endothelial dysfunction. In this study, we aimed to examine the relationship between EMPs and arterial stiffness and atherosclerosis in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
