Endothelial dysfunction is a major risk factor for several of the vascular complications of diabetes, including ischemic stroke. Nitroxyl (HNO), the one electron reduced and protonated form of nitric oxide (NO•), is resistant to scavenging by superoxide, but the role of HNO in diabetes mellitus associated endothelial dysfunction in the carotid artery remains unknown.
