OBJECTIVE: The aim is to analyze the value of endothelial dysfunction markers during pregnancy.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: Materials and methods: We have examined 153 pregnant women to identify endothelial dysfunction markers of endothelin-1, nitrogen oxide (NO) that have been studiedusing immunoenzymometric sets for an uncomplicated and complicated pregnancy.

RESULTS: Results: We found that the concentration of endothelin-1 repeatedly exceeded the rates in pregnant women with miscarriages than during physiological pregnancy. The diametrically opposite pattern concerns the level of nitrogen oxide. These changes in the markers of the functional state of the endothelin indicate the development of the dysfunction of this system in women with the pathology of pregnancy.

CONCLUSION: Conclusions: Consequently, endothelial dysfunction can be considered to be one of the reasons for miscarriage in the examined women. Therefore, the definition of markersof endothelial dysfunction has prognostic value.
