- Endothelial function. From vascular biology to clinical applicationsDominik Behrendt
Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
Am J Cardiol 90:40L-48L. 2002..Studies of endothelial function represent a prime example of a successful application of insights derived from vascular biology at the bedside...
- Impact of coronary endothelial function on the progression of cardiac transplant-associated arteriosclerosis: effect of anti-oxidant vitamins C and EDominik Behrendt
Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
J Heart Lung Transplant 25:426-33. 2006..Endothelial dysfunction is a key feature of TxAA and reflects oxidant stress. We hypothesized that coronary endothelial dysfunction portends greater TxAA progression and a larger therapeutic response to anti-oxidant vitamins...
- Long-term effect of combined vitamins E and C on coronary and peripheral endothelial functionScott Kinlay
Brigham and Women s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
J Am Coll Cardiol 43:629-34. 2004..We tested whether long-term administration of antioxidant vitamins C and E improves coronary and brachial artery endothelial function in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD)...
- Circulating autoantibodies to oxidized LDL correlate with impaired coronary endothelial function after cardiac transplantationJames C Fang
Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, Mass 02115, USA
Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 22:2044-8. 2002..Because endothelial dysfunction is key in the initiation of transplant-associated arteriosclerosis, we postulated that the level of OxLDL autoantibody is associated with the degree of impairment of coronary endothelial function...
- Effect of vitamins C and E on progression of transplant-associated arteriosclerosis: a randomised trialJames C Fang
Cardiovascular Division, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Lancet 359:1108-13. 2002..We postulated that treatment with antioxidant vitamins C and E would retard the progression of transplant-associated arteriosclerosis...
- No-reflow is an independent predictor of death and myocardial infarction after percutaneous coronary interventionFrederic S Resnic
Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, Mass 02116, USA
Am Heart J 145:42-6. 2003..The objectives of this analysis were to evaluate the occurrence of no-reflow as an independent predictor of adverse events and to determine whether treatment with intracoronary vasodilator therapy affected clinical outcomes...
- Impact of obstructive sleep apnea on the occurrence of restenosis after elective percutaneous coronary intervention in ischemic heart diseaseStephan Steiner
Department of Cardiology, Pneumology and Angiology University Düsseldorf, 40225 Dusseldorf, Germany
Respir Res 9:50. 2008..However, there are no data on the course of coronary stenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with obstructive sleep apnea...
