BACKGROUND Ultrasonographic evaluation of systemic arterial function is widely available, and a close relation of endothelial function in the coronary and brachial arteries has been documented. It is unknown, however, whether a similar correlation exists for their 2 microcirculatory territories and thus whether assessment of the systemic microcirculation can be used similarly as a surrogate marker of myocardial perfusion. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-three patients with documented coronary… CONTINUE READING
