This single visit study examined whether endothelial function, in addition to cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and plasma microparticle content, was normalised in 15 patients with type 2 diabetes + acute coronary syndrome (ACS) (6 weeks-6 months post cardiac event) undergoing standard clinical care compared to 16 sex- and age-matched healthy controls.
- acute coronary syndrome
- endothelial dysfunction
- endothelial microparticles
