AIMS Endothelial dysfunction in chronic heart failure (CHF) contributes to vasoconstriction. Underlying atherosclerosis may increase vascular abnormalities in ischaemic CHF. We aimed to compare flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and nitroglycerin-mediated dilation (NMD) of the brachial artery between patients with ischaemic and non-ischaemic CHF. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 57 patients with systolic CHF participated in the study (mean age 59 +/- 8 years, 81% male). Patients were in stable NYHA… CONTINUE READING
