BACKGROUND Chronic changes in blood flow stimulate arterial remodeling, which contributes to the maintenance of vascular homeostasis. Experimental studies suggest that remodeling represents a response to local changes in endothelial shear stress and is nitric oxide-dependent. METHODS AND RESULTS To investigate determinants of outward arterial remodeling in humans, we measured ulnar artery flow, diameter, and flow-mediated dilation before and after removal of the adjacent radial artery in 53… CONTINUE READING
