Abstract

OBJECTIVE - We evaluated whether time since menopause influences the acute and chronic effect of Estradiol (E) on vascular endothelial function. METHODS AND RESULTS - We studied flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) in 134 postmenopausal women (PMW) before and after acute and chronic E administration. At baseline FMD was inversely associated to time from menopause (r=-0.67, P
