Relationship Between Hemorheology and Endothelial Dysfunction in Renal Transplant Patients Receiving Calcineurin Inhibitors.


BACKGROUND: Calcineurin inhibitors, mainly cyclosporin A (CsA), are associated with endothelial dysfunction in renal transplant recipients (RTRs).Hemorheological disturbances including decreased erythrocyte deformability (ED), increased plasma viscosity and erythrocyte aggregation (EA) have also been reported in CsA-treated RTRs. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between hemorheological factors and endothelialdysfunction in CsA- and tacrolimus (Tc)-treated RTRs.
