Hoenicka, Markus and Keyser, Andreas and Rupprecht, Leopold and Puehler, Thomas and Hirt, Stephan and Schmid, Christof (2011) Endothelium-dependent vasoconstriction in isolated vessel grafts: a novel mechanism of vasospasm? The Annals of thoracic surgery 92 (4), pp. 1299-1306.
YC-1-induced vasoconstriction demonstrates the existence of an endothelium-dependent vasoconstrictor pathway in the blood vessels of patients with CAD that to date has been described only in animal models of hypertension. Patients with CAD who have elevated plasma levels of endothelin-1 are thus prone to endothelium-dependent vasoconstriction, which may also play a role in vasospasm in vascular grafts.
