Studies in isolated vessels and rat models of hypertension suggest that angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7) potentiates the vasodilator effect of bradykinin, possibly through ACE inhibition. We therefore tested the hypothesis that Ang-(1-7) potentiates the vasodilator or tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) response to bradykinin in the human forearm vasculature. Graded(More)
Paradoxical systemic air embolism (PAE) occurring as a complication of right-to-left intracardiac shunting during evaluation and treatment of pulmonary hypertension (PH) has not been previously reported. We report four cases of PH-associated PAE recently encountered at our center. Two patients with PH experienced transient neurologic deficits during(More)
