Recent studies show that low-intensity ultrasound (US) increases endothelial nitric oxide (NO) levels in different models both in vitro and in vivo. Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is characterized by endothelial cell dysfunction, mainly as a result of altered shear stress responses associated with vasoconstriction, reduced capillary perfusion and… CONTINUE READING
