The role of the endothelium in the control of coronary flow has been demonstrated. Results of recent studies, both on animals and on humans, suggest that endogenous endothelin also plays an important role in basal coronary tone. Disease processes such as ischaemia-reperfusion injury, congestive heart failure, hypertension and atherosclerosis may be… (More)
