Impact of type 2 diabetes on nitric oxide and adrenergic modulation of myocardial perfusion.

Abstract

Type 2 diabetic patients are characterized by a reduced adenosine-induced hyperemic myocardial perfusion, which may contribute to their increased cardiovascular morbidity. We hypothesized that the reduced hyperemia can be explained by functional changes in endothelial or autonomic nervous regulation. In 12 type 2 diabetic patients without signs of ischemic… (More)
