Abstract:

Hypercholesterolemia, which includes high concentrations of low density lipoproteins LDL, alters normal endothelial functions in patients with atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of low density lipoproteins on endothelial mediated changes in coronary blood flow and coronary vascular resistance in hypercholesterolemic swine. Animals were assigned at random into three groups n5group.
