The influence of acute hyperglycemia on brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation in the early and late follicular phases of the menstrual cycle.

Summary of "The influence of acute hyperglycemia on brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation in the early and late follicular phases of the menstrual cycle."

What is the central question of the study? This is the first study to examine the impact of acute hyperglycemia on endothelial function [flow-mediated dilatation (FMD)] in premenopausal women across the early and late follicular (EF and LF) phases of the menstrual cycle. What is the main finding and its importance? FMD was impaired 90 minutes following glucose ingestion with no significant difference between phases. This indicates that women are susceptible to acute hyperglycemia-induced endothelial dysfunction in both the EF and LF phases of the menstrual cycle, despite potentially vasoprotective elevations in estradiol levels during the LF phase.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.

The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.

Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
