Özet

Objective: Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is known as a non-traditional risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Considering the increased prevalence of hypervolemia and heart failure in patients with peritoneal dialysis (PD), we aimed to investigate the relationship of ADMA with other biochemical parameters, echocardiographic findings, and results of bioimpedance analysis, which is a method for the determination of body fluid distribution in detail.
