AIM Flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) of the brachial artery measures the ability of the artery to dilate after a forearm ischemia lasting for 5 min. During ischemia, and therefore in conditions of low flow, constriction of the brachial artery (L-FMC) has sometimes been reported. The meaning of L-FMC is still unclear. The aims of our study were to establish the prevalence of subjects with L-FMC, to determine whether the magnitude of L-FMC correlates with magnitude of FMD, and to determine… CONTINUE READING
