Abstract

TDemonstration of Early Endothelial Dysfunction in Diabetics with Normal Exercise Electrocardiogram

Endothelial dysfunction is considered to be an early marker for atherosclerosis. In the present study, we evaluated carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT), and coronary flow reserve (CFR) by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in type II diabetes mellitus (DM) patients that have no ischeamic symptomson treadmill test.

Keywords: Endothelial dysfunction; Carotid artery intima media thickness,Coronary flow reserve; Echocardiography; Diabetes mellitus
