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.

To determine the normal values of flow mediated dilatation (FMD) in Taiwanese women with normal singleton pregnancies for the early detection of preeclampsia.
Brachial artery reactivity (BAR) is usually determined as the maximum brachial artery diameter (BAD) following release of an occluding pressure cuff compared to a BAD before cuff inflation. BAD early ...
About 10% of supracondylar humerus fractures in children are associated with distal ischemia. In case of acute limb ischemia after reduction and fixation, it is recommended to explore the brachial art...
Loss of the T2 vertebral artery flow void can be an ominous sign in patients with trauma. However, the significance of an absent vertebral artery flow void is less clear when discovered incidentally i...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the vascular effects of tibolone on climateric women measured by flow-mediated evaluation of the brachial artery using high resolution ultrasound and c...
This is a prospective observational study on incident peritoneal dialysis patients on the effect of hemoglobin level and vascular reactivity using the generic erythropoietin alpha. The obj...
In this double-blinded, placebo-controlled, fixed-dose, study patients will be randomly assigned to take placebo or 20 mg tadalafil thrice weekly for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks a wash out peri...
The objective of the study is to define the analytical repeatability of quantifying flow-mediated dilation of the brachial artery using brachial artery ultrasound imaging using upper arm c...
The objective of this study is to demonstrate that the investigational device, AngioDefender, is comparable to the established procedure referred to as 'brachial artery ultrasound imaging'...
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.
