Macrocirculatory endothelium-dependent and independent vasodilatation is integral to tissue-bed oxygen delivery and homeostasis. Dysfunction of macrocirculatory vasoreactivity is a precursor to atherosclerosis and occurs in a similar fashion in multiple tissue beds long before the onset of symptoms. Impaired macrocirculatory vasodilatation has been shown to… CONTINUE READING
