Preserved flow-mediated dilation in adults with cyanotic congenital heart disease.

Abstract:

Adults with cyanotic congenital heart disease (CCHD) have been shown to have endothelial dysfunction in the forearm resistance vessels as assessed with venous occlusion plethysmography. Whether these abnormalities are confined to the microvasculature or reflect generalized endothelial dysfunction remain unknown. We used high-resolution ultrasound to compare flow responses and endothelial-dependent flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in the brachial artery of 13 adult patients with CCHD and 14 health...
