Abstract

Endothelial dysfunction can predict cardiovascular outcomes in several populations of patients. The aim of this study was to assess the severity, time course, and clinical implications of endothelial dysfunction in patients with non-ST-segment elevation (NSTE) acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Sixty patients with NSTE ACS (mean age 62 ± 8 years, 44 men) and 40 controls with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) (mean age 63 ± 10 years, 27 men) were studied. In patients with NSTE ACS and in those with stable CAD, endothelial function was assessed
