Wall shear stress contributes to the endothelial production of vasoactive mediators, like nitric oxide (NO). Brachial artery vasodilation that follows increased blood flow is regulated by NO release. Aim of the present study was to investigate whether resting wall shear stress of the brachial artery is related to flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) induced by forearm ischemia. Wall shear stress was calculated according to the following formula: Wall shear stress=Blood viscosity x Blood velocity… CONTINUE READING
