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 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)
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)
BACKGROUND Radial artery intima-media thickness (rIMT) measured by ultra-high-resolution ultrasound is associated with increased cardiovascular risk and predicts outcomes. We performed non-invasive high-resolution ultrasound of the radial artery to investigate vascular changes in subjects presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and who had undergone(More)
Aim. Models combining diabetes and atherosclerosis are important in evaluating the cardiovascular (CV) effects and safety of antidiabetes drugs in the development of treatments targeting CV complications. Our aim was to evaluate if crossing the heterozygous glucokinase knockout mouse (GK+/-) and hyperlipidemic mouse deficient in apolipoprotein E (ApoE-/-)(More)
BACKGROUND Good glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) protects the microcirculation. Current guidelines suggest glycaemic targets be relaxed in advanced diabetes. We explored whether disease duration or pre-existing macrovascular complications attenuated the association between hyperglycaemia and microvascular function. METHODS 743 participants with(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)
