Relation of preoperative radial artery flow-mediated dilatation to nitric oxide bioavailability in radial artery grafts used in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.

Abstract:

The radial artery is prone to vasospasm after coronary bypass surgery, and endothelial dysfunction is likely to be a key factor. We investigated whether endothelial dysfunction in radial artery conduits is present, and can be identified, preoperatively using a simple noninvasive ultrasound test of radial artery endothelial response, flow-mediated dilatation (FMD). The study population consisted of 126 patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting. The afternoon before operation, pati...
