Previous studies have reported a vasoconstrictor response in the radial artery during a cuff-induced low-flow condition, but a similar low-flow condition in the brachial artery results in nonuniform reactivity. This variable reactivity to low-flow influences the subsequent flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) response following cuff-release. However, it is(More)
The role of microcirculatory dysfunction is increasingly being recognized in the etiopathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. Whilst the importance of detailed mechanistic studies to determine the exact nature of these disturbances is without question, it was large-scale population-based studies that first identified the associations between deranged(More)
OBJECTIVE We have previously described a distinct abnormality in the cutaneous microcirculation that is characterized by an abnormal reperfusion response following an ischemic stimulus. We investigated the physiological significance of this abnormality; by measuring microvascular perfusion and blood oxygen saturation in groups stratified by three distinct(More)
The grey-scale median of the common carotid artery intima-media complex (IM-GSM) characterizes arterial wall composition, and a low IM-GSM is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality in the elderly. We aimed to determine differences in the IM-GSM between a cohort with cerebrovascular disease and a healthy cohort. Eighty-two healthy individuals(More)
