Abstract

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.
