OBJECTIVES The assessment of systemic microvascular reactivity is currently considered to be critical in the stratification of cardiovascular risk. In the present study, we compared skin microvascular function in individuals with early-onset (premature) coronary artery disease (EOCAD, n=30) with that of age-matched and sex-matched healthy individuals (n=30). MATERIALS AND METHODS Using laser speckle contrast imaging, cutaneous blood flow was assessed in the forearm at rest and during… CONTINUE READING
