Endothelial function in clinical pulmonary hypertension.


The endothelium regulates the concentrations of several types of vasoactive substances that affect pulmonary vascular tone, and endothelia can oppose vasoconstriction in some circumstances by releasing vasodilators. To assess some of these endothelial functions in patients with pulmonary hypertension, we made measurements of selected vasoactive substances… (More)
