Our objective was to compare brachial artery endothelium dependent and independent vasodilation in lupus patients and healthy females, by means of high-resolution noninvasive brachial artery ultrasound. Endothelially mediated vasodilation was estimated noninvasively by examination of brachial artery responses to postischemic reactive hyperemia and endothelial independent vasodilation from response to sublingual glycerlynitrate (GTN) using high-resolution external vascular ultrasound.
