The clinical correlates and heritability of endothelial function in the community have not been described. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined a measure of endothelial function, brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD), expressed as both percent (FMD%) and actual dilation by ultrasound with the occlusion cuff below the elbow in 2883 Framingham Study participants… CONTINUE READING
