In heart perfusion experiments, a strong correlation was found between HNE efﬂux and functional heart damage . There is an association of enhanced serum HNE and left-ventricular dysfunction [42, 43]. The ischemic myocardial damage correlates also with HNE formation [44, 45]. Summarizing these data, one can conﬁrm that the accumulation of HNE, MDA and protein carbonyls in the blood plasma is a cardiovascular risk factor. Because of the facts known about atherogenesis and the cardiotoxicity-promoting effects of aldehydic LPO products, correction of renal anemia may offer beneﬁts for the reduction of cardiovascular risk of patients with chronic renal failure thus improving their quality of life and the prognosis of renal failure.
