The red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a simple and inexpensive parameter, which reflects the degree of heterogeneity of erythrocyte volume (conventionally known as anisocytosis), and is traditionally used in laboratory hematology for differential diagnosis of anemias. Nonetheless, recent evidence attests that anisocytosis is commonplace in human disorders such as cardiovascular disease, venous thromboembolism, cancer, diabetes, community-acquired pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, liver and kidney failure, as well as in other acute or chronic conditions...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of erythrocyte size variability and has been shown as an independent predictor of mortality. The aim of this article was to evaluate the association of RDW with endothelial dysfunction in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: Patients with 1 to 5 stages of CKD were included in the study. Endothelial function was assessed with flow-mediated dilatation (FMD). Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) were determined...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
