OBJECTIVES We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to understand the role of flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery (BA) and peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT) in predicting adverse events, including cardiovascular (CV) events and all-cause mortality. BACKGROUND FMD of the BA and PAT are non-invasive measures of endothelial function. Impairment of endothelial function is associated with increased CV events. While FMD is the more widely used and studied technique… CONTINUE READING
