Effects of enalaprilat on venoconstriction to norepinephrine: role of prostaglandins.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Most patients with cardiovascular disease continue to receive both aspirin and an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. This is despite the fact that ACE inhibition also inhibits the enzyme kininase II and leads to accumulation of bradykinin which increases prostaglandins. We hypothesized that in normal veins, vasodilator prostaglandins… (More)
