To assess the existence of endothelial dysfunction and the possibility of the early onset of atherosclerosis in the chronic stage of Kawasaki disease (KD), we examined endothelial function in adult patients late after the onset of KD. We evaluated two age-matched groups: 35 adult KD patients (KD group) (mean age, 27.0 years; mean interval time, 24.1 years), and 36 healthy adults (control group). To assess vascular endothelial function, flow-mediated dilatation (%FMD) of the brachial artery and… CONTINUE READING
