Vascular oscillation (vasomotion) occurs in the microcirculation and is thought to be a significant contributor to tissue perfusion. Our aims were to assess the relationship of vasomotion to perfusion in the cutaneous microcirculation of diabetic patients, to determine the influence on it of endothelium-dependent and nonendothelium-dependent vasodilatory stimuli, and to assess the relationship to perfusion and vasomotion of various biochemical markers of vascular function (HbA1c, LDL- and HDL… CONTINUE READING
