Chronic selective hypertriglyceridemia impairs endothelium-dependent vasodilatation in rats.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE/METHODS In order to investigate whether selective hypertriglyceridemia impairs endothelium-dependent vasodilatation in the rat hindlimb, rats were selectively bred to establish two strains, one with a pronounced hypertriglyceridemia (HT) and the other with normal plasma levels of triglycerides (LT). RESULTS Carotid arteries and aortae removed… (More)
